Providers do not need to do anything to request standard recoupment after receiving a demand letter. Recoupment will begin automatically in accordance with the timeframe outlined in the demand letter received. Interest will accrue on the outstanding principal balance of the debt for each 30 day period in which a balance remains.
If an outstanding balance remains on an overpayment in an eligible collection status, a final demand letter will be issued and the debt may be referred to the Department of Treasury for collection.
