Recruiting LGBT volunteers is one way to demonstrate that your SMP is LGBT-affirming, and will help you reach more LGBT older people to prevent, detect and report Medicare fraud and abuse.

Senior Medicare Patrols (SMPs) empower and assist Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, errors, and abuse through outreach, counseling, and education. This tip sheet provides suggestions on how to outreach to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities, in order that they become volunteers in the SMP network.
