About

It is estimated that the Medicare fraud, waste and abuse problem approaches $60 billion. O ur volunteers take part in the fight against fraud, waste and abuse in Medicare by educating Medicare beneficiaries, their families and caregivers on how to PROTECT themselves from medical identity theft, and how to DETECT and REPORT errors, fraud and abuse. Some SMP volunteers accomplish this education through staffing booths at outreach events (such as health fairs and senior events) and/or giving presentations to various groups of people. Other volunteers, with additional training, assist in counseling and researching reports of questionable billing and service delivery practices received on our Help Line.

Join us on Tuesday, April 11 for our volunteer information session. It starts at 9:30 am and light refreshments will be served. At the session, you can:
