28.1 Overpayments

An “overpayment” occurs when BC+ benefits are paid for someone who was not eligible for them or when BC+ premium calculations are incorrect.  The amount of recovery may not exceed the amount of the BC+ benefits incorrectly provided.  Some examples of how overpayments occur are:


  1. Concealing or not reporting income.

  2. Failure to report a change in income.

  3. Providing misinformation at the time of application regarding any information that would affect eligibility.


Note: Overpayments can only be recovered if the member failed to report a change for which they were notified they were required to report.
