Do you enjoy working with seniors and making a difference? If your answer is yes, Nevada Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) is looking for volunteers to take part in the fight against fraud, waste and abuse in Medicare.

Medicare fraud is a big problem costing taxpayers an estimated $60 billion each year.

SMP volunteers play an important role in addressing this problem by educating Medicare beneficiaries, their families and caregivers through presentations, outreach events and one-on-one counseling.

SMP volunteers receive FREE, comprehensive training to prepare them for their assignments and on-going education to keep abreast of the latest fraud and scam activities. All volunteers are subject to background checks.

If you have some free time and want to make a difference, respond to this posting for more information about our volunteer program. Volunteer opportunities are available statewide. New training sessions will be starting soon.

The Nevada SMP program is funded in part by grants from the U.S. Administration on Aging and is administered by the State of Nevada Aging and Disabilities Service Division. Our mission is to help Medicare beneficiaries prevent, detect and report health care fraud, waste and abuse. For more information see www.smpnvadsd.org.
