Mission Statement

The Senior Medicare Patrol is a program of the U.S. Administration on Aging and is sponsored by the State of Hawaii, Executive Office on Aging. Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP Hawaii) is a volunteer based program that educates our seniors (Kupuna), caregivers and family members statewide about healthcare errors, abuse and fraud. Senior Medicare Patrol programs, help Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries avoid, detect, and prevent 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 4,500 volunteers every year to help in this effort.
