The role of the Senior Medicare Patrol program is:
*Disseminate SMP fraud prevention and identification information through the media, outreach campaigns and community events.
*Assist beneficiaries in resolving potential fraud-related inquiries and issues regarding Medicare, Medicaid and other health care issues.
*Make referrals of suspected cases of fraud, waste and abuse.
The SMP program provides an opportunity for seniors to step up and make an impact on the fight against fraud. The dedicated corps of SMP volunteers does make a difference and will help save billions of dollars due to its volunteer services.
