Identify and Prevent Health Fraud
The goal of the SMP program is to empower seniors to identify and prevent health fraud through outreach and education. The three roles of SMP are:
- Disseminating SMP fraud prevention and identification information
- Assisting beneficiaries in resolving potential fraud-related inquiries and issues
- Making referrals of suspected cases of fraud, waste and abuse to the appropriate investigative entities.
The SMP program has trained volunteers that provide education, outreach and assist older persons in looking at possible healthcare fraud, errors, or waste.
