Senior Medicare Patrol Projects - Empowering Seniors to Prevent Health Care Fraud: The Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) Program includes 53 project grants in all states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Guam. SMP projects have made great progress in recruiting and training volunteers on Medicare errors, fraud and abuse. These volunteers 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.
SMP projects actively work to disseminate SMP fraud prevention and identification information through the media, outreach campaigns, community events and also working with beneficiaries who present with complex cases such as compromised Medicare numbers. Through these efforts, beneficiaries contact the projects with inquiries and complaints regarding Medicare, Medicaid and other health care or related consumer issues.

With this funding opportunity ACL anticipates awarding 1 new cooperative agreement to cover the state of Wisconsin.

The award will be subject to the availability of federal funds and have a project period of up to 21 months.

An informational teleconference will be held on Friday, June 10, 2016 at 3:00 pm
