Join Senior Medicare Paatrol to help educate seniors in your community about scams and how they can protect themselves.

SMP volunteers receive training on the basics of Medicare fraud and other healthcare-related scams to conduct short presentations to senior groups in their own community. We provide all materials needed for the presentations, including scripts to use as a guide. Volunteers are also provided materials to help with community events such as health fairs/resource fairs to spread awareness of the SMP program.

Volunteering for SMP is flexible and is done on an as-needed basis. Because our presentations and events occur during business hours Monday through Friday, it's the perfect opportunity for retirees to give back! Couples could also team up and volunteer together!

The Louisiana SMP is a federal grant program through the Administration for Community Living (ACL). In Louisiana, SMP is sponsored by AdviseWell, Inc. with corporate offices in New Orleans. For more information, contact Sunny Lawless at 877-272-8720 pr visit www.stopmedicarefraud.org.

About Senior Medicare Patrol - AdviseWell, Inc.

Location:

Corporate Office: 201 St. Charles Avenue, Suite 2401, New Orleans, LA 70170, US

Mission Statement

Senior Medicare Patrol programs help Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries prevent, detect and report health care fraud. In doing so, they not only protect older persons, they also help preserve the integrity of the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Because this work often requires face-to-face contact to be most effective, SMPs nationwide recruit and teach nearly 5,000 volunteers every year to help in this effort. Most SMP volunteers are both retired and Medicare beneficiaries and thus well-positioned to assist their peers.

Description

Senior Medicare Patrol staff and their highly trained volunteers conduct outreach to Medicare beneficiaries in their communities through group presentations, exhibiting at community events, answering calls to the SMP help lines and one-on-one counseling. Their primary goal is to teach Medicare beneficiaries how to protect their personal identity, identify and report errors on their health care bills, and identify deceptive health care practices, such as illegal marketing, providing unnecessary or inappropriate services and charging for services that were never provided. In some cases, SMPs do more than educate: When Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries are unable to act on their own behalf to address these problems, the SMPs work with family caregivers and others to address the problems, and if necessary, make referrals to outside organizations who are able to intervene.
