1099s for Calendar Year 2020

PROVIDER ALERT

In January 2021, the South Carolina Enterprise Information System (SCEIS) will begin issuing 1099 forms to South Carolina Healthy Connections Medicaid providers. These forms will be for the calendar year 2020.

In July 2019, the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) transitioned the payment of Medicaid claims to the State of South Carolina's consolidated accounting system, SCEIS. SCEIS requires payments to be issued to a single bank account for each taxpayer identification number (TIN), either a Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) or a Social Security Number (SSN). To make the transition to SCEIS, SCDHHS required Healthy Connections Medicaid group providers with multiple National Provider Identifier (NPI) numbers and/or multiple Medicaid Provider Numbers associated with a single TIN to designate one NPI and Medicaid Provider Number combination (a specific provider) to receive payment through SCEIS. The payments for all providers associated with that TIN were then made to the designated bank account for the NPI and Medicaid Provider Number combination. For more information on this transition, visit https://vip.scdhhs.gov/sceis/.

In January 2021, SCEIS will begin issuing 1099 forms for calendar year 2020 to Healthy Connections Medicaid providers. The 1099 forms will be issued to theNPI and Medicaid Provider Number combination designated by the provider and will include payments for all NPIs and Medicaid Provider Numbers associated with the TIN. Providers will be responsible for any additional required breakdown of 1099 information.

If you have any questions regarding 1099s for calendar year 2020, please contact the Provider Service Center at (888) 289-0709.

Thank you for your continued support of the South Carolina Healthy Connections Medicaid program.
