Alert: In a ruling made on Thursday June 30th by the Second District U.S. Court of Appeals in Manhattan, the previous approval of the Visa/MasterCard settlement has been reversed, and the district court’s certification of the class has been vacated.

Since the settlement may be revived, potentially with amended terms, you may still enroll in MCAG’s service. MCAG will honor all enrollments received to date and any received in the future. If the parties are able to move forward with a claims process, the timing of such process is unknown. MCAG will not have any guess as to when a claims process may occur until further updates are released by the court, and we will update enrolled clients accordingly.


Once you begin the enrollment process, you are not able to save the form and return to it later.  So, if you have multiple locations and merchant ID’s (MID’s), we suggest that you compile all necessary documentation before beginning the enrollment process.  For each MID, we’ll ask for the applicable business name, address, tax ID, payment processor name, and approximate dates with the processor.

If you do not want to spend the time entering all of this information now, you can simply enroll your primary location and download a template for your additional information to be uploaded later.  Clicking here will redirect you to the location where you can download the template and upload it once it is completed.

Please contact an MCAG representative at 800-291-6429 if you have any questions throughout the enrollment process.

Terms and Conditions:

This Enrollment Form pertains to Managed Care Advisory Group’s (“MCAG”) Settlement Recovery Service (“Service”) for the Visa MasterCard Class Action Settlement [In re Payment Card Interchange Fee and Merchant Discount Antitrust Litigation, MDL No. 1720] (“Settlement”). When the claims forms become available and the filing period opens, MCAG will file a claim on behalf of the Merchant/Business (“Client”) provided below, and any additional locations provided using this online Enrollment Form, or included on a separate sheet that is uploaded to MCAG.

MCAG offers this Service on a contingent fee basis (30% of the amount that is actually recovered for the Client under the Settlement). MCAG will use its best efforts to maximize the recovery amount due to its clients in accordance with the terms of the Settlement and the data made available to MCAG. Due to the complexity of the terms and provisions of the Settlement and due to the authority given to the Settlement Administrator, MCAG cannot warrant or guarantee the dollar amount, if any, returned to the Client through the Settlement process.

MCAG will file a claim based on the information provided by the Client, any data MCAG is able to obtain from Client’s current and past payment card processing company(ies) (“Processor”), and any information made available to MCAG by the Settlement Administrator. It is the sole responsibility of the Client to provide a complete and accurate Enrollment Form to MCAG to ensure that MCAG can file a valid and complete claim on behalf of the Client. MCAG is not responsible for any action, benefit, or consequence to the Client in relation to this Settlement Recovery Service unless MCAG receives a complete and accurate Enrollment Form at least 30 days prior to the Settlement’s filing deadline, which is yet to be determined by the Court.

Providing all of your past and present merchant IDs, business names, locations and Processors dating back to 2004, is necessary for MCAG to attempt to access all available data and file a comprehensive claim on Client’s behalf.

By submitting this Enrollment Form to MCAG, Client hereby authorizes any of its current and/or past Processors and service providers to provide available data to MCAG, and authorizes MCAG to access and utilize such data to the extent reasonably necessary for MCAG to process Client’s claim. Client hereby authorizes MCAG a) to submit a claim for reimbursement under the terms of the Settlement or negotiations or dispute resolutions related thereto, b) to collect, reconcile and distribute the funds that may be due to the Client from the Settlement, and c) to retain the contingency fee from any amounts recovered.

Disclaimer: The Second Circuit Court of Appeals reversed approval of the settlement and returned the case to the District Court on June 30, 2016. Litigation is ongoing. No claim forms are available at this time, and no claim-filing deadline exists. If another settlement is reached, no-cost assistance will be available from the Class Administrator and Class Counsel during any claims-filing period. No one is required to sign up with any third-party service in order to participate in any settlement.
