The mission of the Senior Medicare Patrol is to reduce the millions of tax payers' dollars that we lose to Medicare/Medicaid fraud and abuse every year! Group Presenters empower and assist Medicare beneficiaries, and their caregivers, to prevent, detect and report healthcare fraud, error and abuse by educating them on SMP topics throughout the community!
What would the Group Presenter do?
Group presenters will give 5-30 minute presentations to group audiences, with some presentations including a Q & A end-session portion! SMP volunteers will be expected to travel to various speaking engagements with accomodations on distance range.
