We help seniors resolve legal & long-term care problems

SMP

Ohio SMP (Senior Medicare Patrol)

Watch a video about Ohio SMP!

Using a team of volunteers/peer educators, Ohio SMP helps seniors prevent, detect and report health care fraud, errors and abuse. They do this by:

Conducting Outreach and Education

Our Ohio SMP peer educators, who serve all of Ohio, present to groups, fairs, etc. and work one-on-one with Medicare beneficiaries to educate them about health care fraud and identity theft.

One tool to protect yourself is the Personal Health Care Journal, which you use to record your medical history.  Carry the journal to all your health care visits and take the journal when you travel in case of an emergency.

Hearing Complaints

Our Ohio SMP staff will determine whether or not fraud, errors or abuse is suspected; then they will make referrals to the appropriate state and federal agencies for further investigation.

Concerned about your Medicare statement?  Have a question about protecting your Medicare number?  Contact Ohio SMP.

Recruiting, Training, and Engaging Volunteers

Our Ohio SMP program is strong because of its network of volunteer peer educators. They teach seniors about Medicare fraud and identity theft. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer/peer educator, please contact us.
