Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kentucky is trying to recover possibly millions of dollars in checks mistakenly sent to members because of a processing error in its prescription-management program. Anthem said the checks, worth between 1 cent and $2,000 each, were sent May 15 to about 10,400 state workers. An Anthem spokeswoman said she was unsure of the total value of the checks. The insurer this week began asking recipients to return the checks or repay the money if the checks were cashed.
Can you imagine trying to return one of these checks? I’m sure they have no mechanism for dealing with it and you’d be placed on hold forever and given wrong information if you tried to call to find out how to return money to Anthem.
How much effort do you think they’ll spend trying to recover the 1 cent checks?May 24, 2006
