Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) Program
Medicare Fraud and Abuse Affect All Of Us...
It is estimated that Medicare loses BILLIONS of dollars each year to fraud and abuse.
Consider the following tips from the Senior Medicare Patrol to help you
PROTECT, DETECT, and REPORT concerns...
Review your Medicare Summary Notice or Explanation of Benefits quarterly for accuracy.
Look for three things:
Charges for something you did not receive.
Billing for the same thing twice.
Services that were not ordered by your doctor.
Protect your Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security numbers as you would your credit card or a bank card.
Do NOT give out personal information to unknown callers, visitors, or providers whom you have not contacted for services.
Report any concerns to the Kansas Senior Medicare Patrol.
