Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) -
Prevent Medicare Fraud & Abuse


Don’t be a target of Medicare fraud.

Each year the Medicare program loses approximately
$60 billion dollars annually as a result of errors, fraud
and abuse this is about 2 percent of the nation’s
$3.2 trillion spent on health care!



These losses affect all Americans. 

It affects those who depend on Medicare and Medicaid by
diminishing the quality of the treatment they receive. It affects
caregivers by decreasing the funding available for important
programs. And it affects everyone who pays taxes by wasting
billions of tax dollars.

During the presentation, participants learn how to:

  • Recognize Medicare fraud and abuse

  • Review billing statements

  • Report system abuse

Attendees will also learn about how the Senior LinkAge Line® can assist seniors and their families.

What participants say about this presentation:

"A Matter of Balance was most helpful - it made me more aware of what can be done to ensure safety at home. The class provided a definite time each week to meet and discuss concerns with others. I wish we had even more exercise activities at each class. Great to share and learn!"
