Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) programs in 53 states and territories were awarded funding from the Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living to continue their work of uncovering Medicare fraud and waste.

The grants support the recruitment and training of volunteers that help educate Medicare beneficiaries about how to prevent, detect and report fraud. The increased funding will promote and increase community education and outreach, volunteer recruitment efforts and help enhance program management strategies.

Indiana was awarded $149,936 for its SMPs to work alongside the Indiana Association of Area Agencies on Aging Education Institute. They not only educate, but also provide the tools to help protect senior citizens from fraud. Local SMP offices provide assistance in correcting mistakes and referring the suspected fraud to the appropriate authorities.

“In Indiana, our seniors, caregivers, and Senior Medicare Patrol volunteers are the eyes and ears in the fight against health care fraud,” said Tamra Simpson , Indiana’s SMP program director. “Nationwide, the Senior Medicare Patrol programs have educated more than 2 million beneficiaries on how to identify Medicare fraud. Locally, with this grant, we can recruit and empower more senior volunteers to join us in this important work.”

Indiana seniors that want to volunteer for their local SMP or report suspected health care fraud may call 800-986-3505 or email tsimpson@iaaaa.org.
