Each year, over $60 billion are lost to fraud, errors, and abuse in Medicare. Money lost to fraud means fewer dollars available for needed services and decreased quality of care for all. The Senior Medicare Patrol program, or SMP, is a national initiative dedicated to curbing fraud and abuse in Medicare and Medicaid. Join CARIE (Center for Advocacy for the Rights and Interest of the Elderly) volunteer Dan Louis to learn more about what you can to do protect, detect, and report Medicare Fraud. This program will feature information about scams specifically related to COVID-19, fraud, and best practices for older adults, their families, and caregivers to protect themselves from malicious persons and entities.
About CARIE: Since its founding in 1977, CARIE has been fulfilling its mission to promote the well-being, rights, and autonomy of older adults through advocacy, education, and action.
