We had a member submit four receipts for reimbursement. Reimbursement was not being requested for all of the expenses on the receipts (line item reimbursement).
- The total of the receipts was approximately $300.
- The total reimbursement requested was approximately $80.
- On one receipt, there was $70 of charges, only $4 of which was to be reimbursed
- On that same receipt, food stamps were used to make $30 of the payment.
Fortunately, the reimbursement is small relative to the charge, so I don't think we'd run into any problems here, but we a feeling that reimbursing a receipt with a food stamp payment could open us up to some legal problems. But we're not entirely sure, and I haven't found anything that addresses the issue. Does anyone here have any knowledge or experience with this type of thing?
