The Senior Medicare Patrol of New Jersey (SMP) is designed to improve the quality of healthcare for senior citizens in New Jersey by educating seniors about Medicare and Medicaid fraud, waste and abuse.

The goal of the project is to provide information so that seniors can take the appropriate steps to protect themselves from becoming victims of fraud, waste and abuse.

The SMP develops and disseminate consumer educational materials about Medicare and Medicaid fraud, waste and abuse at outreach events at senior centers, community centers and private clubs.
