Senior Medicare Patrol
The Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) is a nationwide effort to educate and empower seniors to protect themselves against fraud, learn to detect errors and report healthcare abuse.
With so many scams targeting seniors, volunteers have the unique opportunity to help stop healthcare fraud at the source! The NY Senior Medicare Patrol hosts Education Sessions to teach seniors a variety of tips & tricks to ensure their healthcare benefits are safe & personal information is secure from scammers.
In an effort to reach out to limited/non-English speaking communities, the Senior Medicare Patrol is seeking Spanish speakers to assist us!
What would a Senior Medicare Patrol volunteer do?
Senior Medicare Patrol volunteers will give education sessions to various older adult audiences in both English & Spanish about Medicare & Medicaid fraud/abuse. Education sessions are hosted all throughout the NY metro area, including all 5 boroughs, Westchester, & Long Island
No prior healthcare education? No problem! New York Senior Medicare Patrol will provide comprehensive training to interested volunteers.
