"Looks Can Be Deceiving" strives to illustrate that disabilities aren't always visible, and people with disabilities aren't necessarily disabled. Roughly 17% of people living in Klamath Falls have a disability that limits their ability to live independently. How do we as neighbors, friends, and a community support their goals for independence?

Senior Medicare Patrol

 

The Purpose of the Program and How it Works

 

Billions of federal dollars are lost annually due to health care fraud, error and abuse. Since 1997 AoA has funded SMP projects to recruit and train retired professionals and other senior citizens about how to recognize and report instances or patterns of health care fraud.

The SMP program empowers seniors through increased awareness and understanding of healthcare programs. This knowledge helps them to protect themselves from the economic and health-related consequences of Medicare and Medicaid fraud, error and abuse. SMP projects also work to resolve beneficiary complaints of potential fraud in partnership with state and national fraud control/consumer protection entities, including Medicare contractors, state Medicaid fraud control units, state attorneys general, the OIG and CMS.

These activities support AoA’s goals of promoting increased choice and greater independence among older adults. The activities of the SMP program also serve to enhance the financial, emotional, physical and mental well-being of older adults — thereby increasing their capacity to maintain security and independence in retirement, and to make better financial and healthcare choices.

The National Consumer Protection Technical Resource Center (the Center) provides training and technical assistance to SMP projects, promotes national visibility and shares best practices. The Center disseminates information for consumers and professionals and maintains the online SMP Locator External Web Site Policy.

Disability Benefits

The Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs are the largest of several Federal programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities. While these two programs are different in many ways, both are administered by the Social Security Administration and only individuals who have a disability and meet medical criteria may qualify for benefits under either program.

 
Disability Starter Kit

The Disability Starter Kit will help you get ready for your disability interview or online application. Kits are available for adults and for children under age 18.

The starter kits provide information about the specific documents and the information that we will request from you. We will ask for more details during your interview or when you complete the online Disability Report.

The kits also provide general information about the disability programs and our decision-making process that can help take some of the mystery out of applying for disability benefits.
