The Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) mission is to empower and assist Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, abuse, and errors through outreach, counseling, and education. All the Senior Medicare Patrol programs across the country are grant-funded projects from the Administration for Community Living (ACL), which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The Wisconsin SMP program is housed at the Greater Wisconsin Agency on Aging Resources (GWAAR). GWAAR is a nonprofit agency committed to supporting the successful delivery of aging programs and services throughout Wisconsin. It provides aging lead agencies with training, technical assistance, and advocacy to ensure the availability and quality of programs and services to meet the changing needs of older people in Wisconsin. SMP is pleased to be a part of this statewide organization.
The Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) empowers and assists Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, abuse, and errors through outreach, counseling, and education.

Volunteer involvement ranges from distributing materials, staffing a booth at fairs and outreach events, to giving group presentations. By volunteering with SMP you can invest in your community, potentially saving beneficiaries money and improving their quality of life.
