Division of Federal Employees' Compensation (DFEC)
Information for Medical Providers – 1099 Forms for 2016
Please be advised that an error occurred when 1099-MISC forms were issued recently to medical providers who have received payments from OWCP for treatment of injured workers under the Federal Employees Compensation Act. Two 1099-MISC forms were inadvertently issued to medical providers, one of which reported income for Tax Year 2015, and the other of which reported income for Tax Year 2016, although both forms were labeled as Tax Year 2016.
Corrected 1099-MISC forms for Tax Year 2016 will be mailed to medical providers by February 21, 2016. Please disregard any forms already received. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this error. Medical providers who have questions about form 1099 may call DFEC's Central Bill Processing customer service line at 844-493-1966.
Additional information regarding this matter is available on DFEC's web bill processing portal.
