Preventing healthcare errors, fraud and abuse is everyone’s responsibility!The Massachusetts Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) Program is a statewide partnership between community based organizations and mainstream agencies. Our objective is to reach and educate Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, family members, caregivers, and professionals on the importance of being engaged healthcare consumers to prevent healthcare errors, fraud and abuse.
The MA SMP Program is designed to provide education and resources on how to address healthcare errors, fraud and abuse for Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, family members, caregivers, and professionals, with a focused effort on reaching limited English proficient, Native Americans and other hard-to-reach populations.
Healthcare errors, fraud and abuse cost you, as an American taxpayer, billions of dollars annually and may cost you your life or the life of a loved one. We are all responsible for being involved participants in our own healthcare. If you or someone you know has been subjected to questionable billing practices and/or deceptive marketing tactics related to healthcare, contact the MA SMP Program.
The MA SMP Program is one of 54 SMP programs across the country including Washington DC, Puerto Rico, Guam and U.S. Virgin Islands. The MA SMP Program is funded by the Administration For Community Living. For more information about other SMP programs visit www.smpresource.org.
