Senior Medicare Patrol National Resource Center: The mission of the Administration for Community Living’s (ACL) Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) program is to empower and assist Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, errors, and abuse through outreach, counseling, and education. The SMP program seeks to empower beneficiaries through increased awareness and understanding of health care programs to protect them from the economic and health-related consequences associated with Medicare fraud, errors, and abuse. ACL provides grant funding to support 53 SMP projects, including grantees in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Guam. The SMP projects use this funding to provide local outreach, education, and assistance to people with Medicare. SMP projects educate Medicare beneficiaries about how to protect their Medicare numbers, examine their Medicare Summary Notices to detect discrepancies, and report suspicious activity. SMP projects actively work to disseminate SMP fraud prevention and identification information through the media, outreach campaigns, and community events. As a result of these efforts, beneficiaries contact the SMP projects with inquiries and complaints regarding potential Medicare fraud, errors, and abuse. SMPs provide in-depth counseling and assistance to help beneficiaries who present with complex Medicare cases. 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 to support the SMP program and its 53 projects nationwide. ACL anticipates awarding 1 new cooperative agreement, at the federal funding level of $640,000 per year. The award will be subject to the availability of federal funds and have a project period of up to five years.
