What do I do if I receive a Medicaid overpayment?
This is a situation where you realize that for some reason or other, you have been overpaid by Medicaid, or by any of the federally funded health programs like Medicare or TRICARE. If you conclude that you have been overpaid, unfortunately you must repay the money as soon as possible. This is not a windfall. There are severe penalties for not repaying monies that you know you were not entitled to receive.
