2019 Performance Data for the Senior Medicare Patrol Projects

In 1997, Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) projects were established to recruit and train retired professionals and other senior citizens to prevent, recognize, and report health care fraud, errors, and abuse. The initiative stemmed from recommendations in a congressional committee report accompanying the Omnibus Consolidated Appropriations Act of 1997. OIG reports these performance data annually. We will review performance data and documentation relating to Medicare and Medicaid recoveries, savings, and cost avoidance for SMP projects. ACL requested this information, which will support its efforts to evaluate and improve the performance of its projects.
