Medicare Compensation Recovery

Asking for a review of your repayment amount

You may ask for a review if we have told you that you have to repay all the services listed on your Medicare history statement.

You have 2 years from the date your compensation case settled to ask for a review of your repayment.

To request a review, write, email or fax the Medicare Compensation Recovery team.

You may need to tell us why:

  • we didn’t get the Medicare history statement, and
  • other services in the notice of past benefits don’t relate to your claim

We’ll send you a new:

  • Medicare history statement to complete and send back to us within 28 days

After you return your Medicare history statement, we’ll send you a new notice of past benefits with your new repayment amount.

You may get a refund if your new payment amount is less than what you’ve already paid.

If you don’t agree with our decision, you can ask for a review by contacting:

The Administrative Appeals Tribunal
GPO Box 9955
