Some frequently asked questions and answers regarding your 1099 are found below.
What should I do if I did not receive my 2022 1099?
Answer: If your mailing address is correct in our records, please be advised NGS combines all payments you received from our Medicare Parts A and B contracts, for each individual Tax ID number, under a single 1099. Please check with all your office sites.
If your mailing address is incorrect or not current on our files, then a Change of Information to your Medicare enrollment is needed. Instructions on how to change existing provider enrollment information can be found on our website under Enrollment > Change Existing Provider Enrollment Information. Note: If you received less than $600 from NGS for calendar year 2022, no 1099 will be issued or sent to you.
What if I disagree with the amount on my 1099?
Answer: Your 1099 includes all payments you received from our Medicare Parts A and B contracts for each individual Tax ID number. Further, the amount on the Form 1099 may not match the amount of the payments received, if there were offsets applied for receivables due to Medicare.
If you still disagree with the amount, please contact the NGS Provider Contact Center for your jurisdiction and line of business, starting in February 2022.
What if I need a copy of my 1099 for the current year or a prior year?

How do I register for an NGSConnex account to obtain a copy of my 1099?
