Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP)
Each year billions of federal dollars are lost annually due to health care fraud, error, and abuse. The Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) empowers and assists Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, errors, and abuse through outreach, counseling and education.
The primary goal is to teach Medicare beneficiaries how to protect their personal identity, identify and report errors on health care bills, and identify deceptive health care practices.
To report Medicare fraud or abuse, call toll free 1-800-541-7735
