1099 Tax Form

Medicare contractors send the 1099-MISC or 1099-INT (1099 Forms) to providers to report the payments made by the contractor for the calendar year. Providers who receive the 1099 Form are required to use its information as part of their tax reporting.


  • 1099 Forms report gross payments made by Noridian between January 1 and December 31 of the calendar year
  • A gross amount of $600.00 or more must be paid to the provider before 1099 Forms will be issued by Medicare
  • 1099 Forms do not consider any recoupments or refunds, including offsets
  • 1099 Forms are mailed no later than January 31; however, please allow until at least the third week of February for the form to arrive

Duplicate Copies

Duplicate copies of 1099 Forms are available in the Noridian Medicare Portal (NMP), starting with the year 2017. Instructions on how to access the 1099 Forms in NMP are available within the Portal Guide.

Gross Amount Disagreement

If the provider maintains the gross amount on the 1099 Forms is incorrect, they may submit a request to obtain a net payment document. This request is done via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Please note, the Tax Identification Number (TIN) is required for the FOIA request. More information on the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is available on our website.
