The Center for Medicare Advocacy is recommending that all Medicare Part D beneficiaries check their Social Security 1099 forms for accuracy after problems have been reported. According to the Center for Medicare Advocacy, the Social Security Administration and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have had difficulty withholding the correct Medicare Part D premiums from 1099 forms.
The 1099 forms report income received in 2006 and deductions taken from that income, including Medicare premiums. After receiving some reports of confusion around Part D deductions from 1099 forms, the Center for Medicare Advocacy is asking everyone to check to make sure the deductions reported on the form match their records. If you find a problem, you can contact the Center for Medicare Advocacy.
