Senior Medicare Patrol National Resource Center: Educating consumers to prevent healthcare fraud is the essence of the mission and message of the Administration for Community Living’s (ACL) Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) program. The SMP mission is to empower and assist Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers to prevent, detect, and report healthcare fraud, errors, and abuse through outreach, counseling, and education. The 54 SMP projects recruit and train volunteers to educate Medicare beneficiaries about how to protect their Medicare numbers, examine their Medicare Summary Notices to detect discrepancies, and report suspicious activity when detected. The SMP program seeks to empower beneficiaries through increased awareness and understanding of healthcare programs to protect them from the economic and health-related consequences associated with Medicare fraud, error, and abuse. With this funding opportunity ACL is seeking applicants for a single cooperative agreement to operate the Senior Medicare Patrol National Resource Center (The Center). The Center will provide training, technical assistance, and promotional activities in support of the SMP program and 54 projects nationally. ACL plans to fund one (1) cooperative agreement at the federal funding level of $640,000 per year, over a three (3) year project period, pending availability of federal funds.
