Health Care Fraud Program Expansion and Senior Medical Patrol Capacity Building Grants

by:

The Administration on Aging, otherwise referred to as AoA, is a federal government agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that's generally answerable for ensuring the welfare of older Americans in their independent communities through the provision of grants and support programs authorized by the Congress in the Older Americans Act.

The grants and programs of the AoA are all designed to contribute to the realization of its primary agency mission which is to "develop a comprehensive, coordinated and cost-effective system of home and community-based services that helps elderly individuals maintain their health and independence in their homes and communities."

In line with this mission, the Administration on Aging has recently established the Health Care Fraud Program Expansion and Senior Medical Patrol Capacity Building Grants in an attempt to boost the capacity of the Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) program to reach more Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, their families and caregivers, while focusing on fraud prevention and identification.

The Senior Medicare Patrol Program has been running for at least 10 years and has consistently received funding from the AoA. Each SMP grantee operates a state-wide program with maximum funding of $180,000 per year provided by Older Americans Act funds.   (continued...)
