Medicare Secondary Payment Interest Calculation Tool Updated

The Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Contractor (MSPRC) has published an updated version of its Interest Calculation Tool.
  • Interest Periods tab
  • The Interest Periods tab gives you the ability to enter a specific demand date and calculate the exact day interest will be assessed each month thereafter for that demand.
  • Demands before October 2004 tab
  • Demands that were issued prior to October 1, 2004 are handled slightly differently. This tab allows you to perform appropriate interest calculations that are tailored to these specific demands.
  • How Interest is Calculated tab
  • Want to know how interest is calculated? This tab provides education on MSPRC's interest calculation process. This includes how the accrual of interest is calculated from day 1 of the demand letter date, the 60-day grace period to pay that amount, and how interest is assessed on the demand amount if the demand is not paid within the grace period. This tab also provides the actual formula for interest calculation to give you a better understanding of the process. Download the Excel based tool at:
