Montana Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP)


Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) is a national program that engages agencies and volunteers in educating Medicare beneficiaries about how to prevent, detect, and report Medicare fraud, errors, and abuse. Rocky’s Agency on Aging serves SMP in Lewis & Clark, Jefferson, and Broadwater counties. Medicare fraud, errors, and abuse cost an estimated 70 billion dollars a year in taxpayer money.
