The Better Business Bureau Education Foundation of Metropolitan Houston has joined the fight against Medicare Fraud with the implementation of its Senior Medicare Patrol program. Otherwise known as the Texas SMP, the Senior Medicare Patrol is a group of volunteers trained to educate and inform Medicare beneficiaries on how to combat fraud and waste of their Medicare dollars. This is a national program funded through a federal grant awarded by the Administration on Aging, www.smpresource.org.
