Family and Children's Medicaid MA-3535 RECIPIENT FRAUD AND ABUSE POLICY AND PROCEDURES
XIV. Distribution of Cash Repayment
A. State law requires that in cases involving overpayments in more than one program, collections must be distributed equitably. This should be followed unless the debtor asks that a payment be applied to a particular claim.
B. It is important that the investigator or collections clerk explain to the debtor that failure to distribute payments among all their claims could cause a claim to become delinquent. If a claim in EPICS is delinquent the debtor’s North Carolina tax refund will be intercepted and applied toward the overpayment claim in EPICS.
