You can do small credit adjustments, but you might want to check your state laws, I believe you don't have to send a check if it exceeds the cost of postage here in NY.  If it's really old you could adjust it off, I don't think anyone will be knocking on the door for a $1.00 I would just put a note in the patients file JUST in case they ever do come back for their $1 :)

Just kidding.  I have adjusted off as Linda stated, but put a comment into the account as well.
