Medicare Fraud/Senior Medicare Patrol

The Idaho Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) program helps prevent, detect and report health care fraud. The program relies on volunteers in local communities to provide education and one-to-one counseling to help people protect their identity and identify other types of Medicare fraud:

  • Double-billing and overcharging
  • Unnecessary or inappropriate services

Additionally, there are education opportunities (Scam Jams) for consumers and the public to learn about other types of fraud:

  • Mail and telemarketing scams
  • Financial exploitation and identity theft
  • Computer and solicitation scams
