Senior Medicare Patrol

Medicare Fraud and Abuse

The U.S. Administration for Community Living (ACL) funds the the SMP project which empowers and assists Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, errors, and abuse through outreach, counseling, and education.

Medicare Minutes

Medicare Minutes are short, engaging presentations on timely Medicare topics that are presented at local sites on a monthly basis. Each month, SHIPs will receive a new Medicare Minute, which they then present at community gathering spots, offering valuable information to their peers, strengthening volunteer participation and establishing programming that has a track record of securing funding from foundation, government, and
individual sources.
