Senior Medicare Patrol and Medicare Scams Awareness

Please be advised that there is a significant amount of Medicare fraud and Scams that are currently occurring. The Administration for Community Living would like to advise individuals on services offered through Senior Medicare Patrol to prevent, protect and investigate Medicare Fraud amongst those Medicare beneficiaries. 

Scammers are offering Medicare beneficiaries "free" screenings or cheek swabs for genetic testing to obtain their Medicare information for identity theft or fraudulent billing purposes. Fraudsters are targeting beneficiaries through telemarketing calls, booths at public events, health fairs, and door-to-door visits. Charles said that Good Samaritans of America, an alleged charity, is fraudulent and should be reported to Office of Inspector General. Visit https://oig.hhs.gov/fraud/hotline or call 1.899.447.8477.

SMP strongly encourages people to review their explanation of benefit and Medicare Summary Notices. If you should have any concerns, need help disputing an insurance charge or need to report a fraud contact 1.877.SMP.4359. You can visit their website at www.seniormedicarepatrolnj.org. To request a presentation on Medicare fraud and Scams that are currently occurring across the Country and NJ, please reach out to our office.
