ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's account to refund an overpayment made by Medicare. In October 1994, he received Correspondence from Aetna Life Insurance Co., the local Medicare carrier. The letter informed him that he had been overpaid $111.45 by Medicare and that he must repay the money within 30 days. If he failed to send a check, the letter threatened, interest at the credit-card-like rate of 13.375 percent would accrue until he did. Furthermore, Aetna would withhold future Medicare payments until the debt was cleared.
