Senior Medicare Patrol


Senior Medicare Patrol (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 empowers Medicare beneficiaries through increased awareness 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 and the Office of the Long-Term Care Ombudsman (LTCO).
