Aging Services

Senior Medicare PatrolProgram

KDADS is currently soliciting applications for the statewide Senior Medicare Patrol Program. This funding opportunity has been established to fund a statewide network of local, community-based partners and team members to provide outreach, counseling, and education to empower Medicare beneficiaries to prevent, detect, and report healthcare fraud, errors and abuse. SMP projects use funding to provide local outreach, education, and assistance to Medicare beneficiaries through a trained volunteer and in-kind workforce.

SMP projects:

  • Teach Medicare beneficiaries to take proactive steps to protect themselves and the Medicare program from potential fraud, errors, and abuse.
  • Actively disseminate fraud prevention and identification information through the media, outreach campaigns, community events, and one-on-one beneficiary support.
  • Help individuals and their loved ones understand how to review their health care statements and bills for accuracy, as well as how to identify and avoid potential fraud schemes. If suspicious activity is identified or suspected, SMPs can help answer questions, resolve errors, or report suspicious activity for further investigation.
  • Assist beneficiaries by referring potential fraud complaints on to other investigate entities, as appropriate. This process can include facilitating referrals to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)-Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU), Attorney General, and other organizations.
  • Capture SMP program activity data including tracking, analyzing, and reporting of beneficiary complaints, referrals, potential savings, and other outcomes.
