SMP is a program aimed at educating older adults and their families about waste, fraud, and abuse in the Medicare system. A largely volunteer program in the spirit of the CHOICES program, SMP volunteers are concerned citizens, often retired professionals, who empower seniors to prevent health care fraud through outreach and education.
NCAAA offers a full complement of training that provides participants with knowledge about the SMP program, Medicare basics, and Medicare fraud, waste, and abuse. Once trained, volunteers conduct presentations and distribute information at community events to educate Medicare beneficiaries, caregivers and other seniors on ways to prevent, detect and report Medicare fraud, waste, and abuse.
