The Texas SMP is dedicated to empowering older citizens
to prevent healthcare fraud by informing them how to:
1. PROTECT their personal information.
2. DETECT potential errors, fraud and abuse by reading their Medicare Summary Notice.
3. REPORT suspected errors, fraud or abuse in order for Medicare and other healthcare payers to recover misspent money.
Health care fraud perpetrators are stealing billions of dollars from the federal government, American taxpayers and some of our most vulnerable citizens. This not only drives up costs for everyone in the health care system, it hurts the long term solvency of Medicare and Medicaid, two programs upon which millions of Americans depend. Texas ranks in the top four states for the most Medicare fraud in the country.
