Attention: All Providers

Corrected 1099 Requests - Action Required by March 15, 2000

Providers receiving Medicaid payments of more than $600 annually will receive a 1099 MISC tax form from Electronic Data Systems Corporation (EDS). This 1099 MISC tax form is generated as required by IRS guidelines and mailed to each provider by January 31, 2000. The 1099 MISC tax form reflects the tax information on file with Medicaid as of the last Medicaid Checkwrite cycle date of December 23, 1999. If the tax name or tax identification number on the annual 1099 MISC received is incorrect, the provider can request a correction to the 1099 MISC. Requesting a correction is in the provider's best interest. Correction ensures that accurate tax information is on file with Medicaid and sent to the IRS annually. When the IRS receives incorrect information on a 1099 MISC, the IRS can require Federal tax withholding in the amount of 31 percent of future Medicaid payments. The IRS could require EDS to initiate and continue this withholding to obtain correct tax data.

A correction to the original 1099 MISC must be submitted by March 15, 2000 and must be accompanied by the following documentation:

Fax both documents to: (919) 859-9703, Attention: Corrected 1099 Request
or
mail both documents to:

EDS
4905 Waters Edge Drive
Raleigh, NC 27606
Attention: Corrected 1099 Request - Financial

Upon receipt of the fax or mailed correction request, EDS will update the tax information on file with Medicaid according to the Special W-9 or IRS W-9. Tax information updates can be verified by checking the last page of each Medicaid Remittance and Status Report (RA) which reflects both provider tax name and tax identification number on file. Additionally, a copy of the corrected 1099 will be generated and mailed for the provider's record retention. All corrected 1099 requests will be summarized and reported to the IRS as required.

EDS, 1-800-688-6696 or 919-851-8888  
 



Attention: All Prescribers

Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Number Required

Effective with date of service April 1, 2000, the Division of Medical Assistance (DMA) will use the DEA number on pharmacy claims instead of the UPIN. This change will be advantageous for the physicians, pharmacies, and the DMA for the following reasons.

Providers must have their DEA registration number on file with Medicaid by April 1, 2000. Failure to do so may result in denied claims. Copy, complete, and return the DEA Registration form for every member of your practice. Please send the information to the following address.
