Health Care Fraud Prevention Program Expansion and SMP Capacity Building Grants: With this Program Announcement, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) seeks to expand the capacity of the Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) program to reach more Medicare beneficiaries, their families and caregivers, with the message of fraud prevention and identification. Grant opportunities are being made available to the 54 current SMP project grantees. Funding levels available vary by grantee and are based on the number of beneficiaries and the amount of frontier area in each territory. This opportunity provides approximately $7.3 million, dependent on the availability of funds, in increased funding for existing SMP grant projects. Increased funding will be used to allow all current (incumbent) SMP grantees to expand their SMP program’s capacity to reach more Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, their families and caregivers by: expanding and enhancing their project’s volunteer work force; expanding SMP outreach and education to beneficiaries statewide; expanding grantee’s ability to manage beneficiary inquiries and complaints in a timely, professional manner; and improving and enhancing state-level SMP program and volunteer management.
