Waste, abuse, and fraud costs our Medicare billions of dollars each year, and these costs are passed on to both beneficiaries, caregivers, and taxpayers. The federal government is cracking down on abusers but they cannot do it alone, they need the help of all beneficiaries, including you. SMPs also called "Senior Medicare Patrols," are funded by the U.S. Administration on Aging and were created to help beneficiaries to PROTECT, DETECT, and REPORT.
Since 1997 SMP Hawaii has grown to over 60 volunteers statewide and has received an increasing budget in recognition of our importance and positive impact on our kupuna and community.
Contact us for participation in community fairs, presentations on MEDICARE Fraud, and we also have a Drama Club that performs training skits on both Oahu and Kauai. In addition to providing all of the above to groups and events, we also provide One-on-One, individual counseling for people who request.
