About ND SMP
The North Dakota Senior Medicare Patrol works to prevent Medicare and Medicaid fraud and errors through volunteering, outreach and education.
The Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) program recruits and educates senior volunteers and professionals such as doctors, nurses, accountants, investigators, and teachers to help Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries become better health care consumers.
By arming consumers across the country with knowledge and information; and partnering with physicians, law enforcement officials, Medicare and Medicaid, community-based organizations, and other consumers, we can save precious health care dollars for the services and care you and your loved ones need.
The vision of the program is focused on supporting efforts of the SMPs to integrate their programs into the fabric of their states and communities. The SMP programs are working to create sustainable partnerships at every level of the health care system- national to local- to empower seniors to prevent and identify health care errors, fraud and abuse.
