SMP volunteers work in their communities to provide education to Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, their family members and their caregivers about preventing health care fraud and abuse.
The SMP seeks to empower beneficiaries through increased awareness and understanding of health care programs to protect them from the economic and health-related consequences of Medicare fraud, errors and abuse.
The Oregon SMP provides services around the state through partnerships with the Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance (SHIBA) program, the Office of the Long-Term Care Ombudsman (LTCO) and the Association for Oregon Centers for Independent Living (AOCIL).
