Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) Project

In 2005, DSC received a one-year demonstration grant award from the Administration on Aging (AoA) to administer the Guam Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) Program. Thereafter, DSC has received funding for two-three year periods (2006 to 2009 and 2009 to 2012) through a continuous application process. In September 2010, AoA provided SMP Projections with additional funding through a capacity building grant to help SMP’s expand its current capacity of which the DSC is using its award to hire a staff through temporary appointment to help recruit, train and maintain Project volunteers. The goal of Guam SMP is to continue expanding Project outreach and education activities to empower Medicare/Medicaid beneficiaries, family members, caregivers and other consumers, to protect themselves against Medicare/Medicaid error, fraud and abuse and know where to report it. In collaboration with Guam MAP, Guam SMP develops, plans, and implements various activities to meet its Project objectives.
