SERVICE DESCRIPTION:The Senior Medicare Patrol Project, funded by the Administration on Aging and administered by the ServiceLink Resource Centers exists so that states can recruit and train retired professionals and other senior citizens about how to recognize and report instances or patterns of health care fraud.

In addition they are made aware of how threats to financial independence and health status may occur when citizens are victimized by fraudulent schemes. These SMP projects partner with the aging network, as well as community, faith-based, tribal, and health care organizations. Together they utilize a variety of outreach strategies to educate and empower their peers to identify, prevent and report health care fraud.

The SMP program empowers seniors through increased awareness and understanding of healthcare programs. This knowledge helps seniors to protect themselves from the economic and health-related consequences of Medicare and Medicaid fraud, error and abuse. SMP projects also work to resolve beneficiary complaints of potential fraud in partnership with state and national fraud control/consumer protection entities, including Medicare contractors, state Medicaid fraud control units, state attorneys general, the OIG and CMS.

These activities support AoA's goals of promoting increased choice and greater independence among older adults. The activities of the SMP program also serve to enhance the financial, emotional, physical and mental well-being of older adults - thereby increasing their capacity to maintain security and independence in retirement, and to make better financial and healthcare choices.

The National Consumer Protection Technical Resource Center (the Center) provides training and technical assistance to SMP projects, promotes national visibility and shares best practices. The Center disseminates information for consumers and professionals and maintains the online SMP Locator . SMP Integration Grants also assist the projects by developing innovative approaches that improve statewide outreach and beneficiary education on new Medicare provisions.

AoA works in partnership with the HHS Office of Inspector General, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Department of Justice, AARP , the aging network and other federal, state and community-based organizations to address health care fraud control issues.
