If you write long enough, you eventually do something stupid. Mylast column was about overpayments by Tricare, the military meical insurance program. I had written Tricare on four occasions asking about apparent overpayments, and telephoned once. The letters were ingnored and by phone I asked what currency the payments used. Ome of them didn´t make sense in pesos, but it turns out the were. Refusal to respond to questions by beneficiaries is not good policy, but it is fare from sasting large amoung of money. I was wrong. Apologies to anyone inconvenienced.
