Volunteers visit senior centers, community centers, and church groups, to conduct SMP presentations, Bingo games and other activities. Volunteers should report opportunities for trainings and presentations to the Volunteer Coordinator for follow up. Volunteers may also write and perform skits about Medicare fraud for seniors at SMP events or for training purposes for other volunteers.
About Kentucky Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP)
400 E Gray St, Louisville, KY 40202, US
Senior Medicare Patrol ( SMP ) helps Medicare beneficiaries, their families and caregivers who have questions about billing issues or believe they may be a victim of healthcare fraud or scams. SMP empowers and assist Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, errors, and abuse through outreach, counseling, and education.
Did You Know?
- $60 - 80 billion tax dollars are lost annually to Medicare fraud, errors, and abuse each year.
- Billing errors are common and can easily be corrected.
- You can help! Medicare Beneficiaries are the first line of defense against healthcare fraud. Learning how to protect personal information, detect fraud, errors and abuse, and reporting suspicious activities can help save tax dollars from criminals.

Medicare fraud happens when Medicare is billed for services or supplies you never got or didn't need. Errors and abuse occur when questionable practices result in unnecessary costs to Medicare.
