The Medicare Beneficiary Overpayment Referral Follow-Up Notice (see HI 02201.015, Exhibit D) will be sent to the SSA/PSC by the Medicare contractor when there has
been no response to the contractor's original referral notice to the appropriate SSA/PSC
after one year, and in situations where the beneficiary is no longer in a pay status.
The Medicare contractor must include the date that the original referral notice (Exhibit
A) was sent or the date that the return notice (Exhibit B) was received from the SSA/PSC.
A response should be sent to the Medicare contractor within 60 calendar days from
the receipt of the follow-up notice.
NOTE: The contractor's file will contain all overpayment notification letters and correspondence
from the beneficiary and/or the beneficiary's representative.
