SMP (Senior Medicare Patrol)
The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services's SMP is a statewide project designed to reduce Medicare & Medicaid fraud, waste and abuse. Through education, outreach, one-on-one assistance and problem resolution, Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries are educated and counseled on how to protect, identify, and report scams and healthcare fraud and abuse. The Kansas SMP will train volunteers to assist with educating consumers on Medicare & Medicaid fraud, abuse and waste. The trained volunteers may give presentations, provide individual assistance, and participate in health and senior fairs in the community.
