Senior Medicare Patrols (SMPs) 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. SMPs are grant-funded projects of the federal U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), U.S. Administration for Community Living (ACL).
The Better Business Bureau Education Foundation of Metropolitan Houston has joined the fight against Medicare Fraud with the implementation of their Senior Medicare Patrol program. The program became statewide in 2008. Otherwise known as the Texas SMP, the Senior Medicare Patrol is a group of volunteers trained to educate and inform Medicare beneficiaries on how to combat fraud and waste of their Medicare dollars. This is a national program funded through a federal grant awarded by the Administration on Aging, www.smpresource.org.
