The Idaho Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) program helps us prevent, detect and report health care fraud. The program relies on volunteers in our local communities to provide education and one-to-one counseling to help us protect our 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
We can use the area map below to find the nearest provider to us. Also to the right, “Quick Tips” and “Resources” are available to better assist us with finding reliable information and supports.
Do you or a loved one feel that you are at risk for social isolation? Take the 3-minute risk assessment to find out.
