Solved! Go to Solution.
Box 6 is income paid to a service provider. It is not a reimbursement for payment in lieu of wages during sick leave or reimbursement for medical expenses.
Do you have the facts right?

I have a similar situation. My client negotiated an early retirement with his employer. As part of the settlement, his former employer paid for 18 months of medical insurance premiums. Proseries experts indicated that I could record the amount on Line 21, additional income. I am wondering if there is another way to handle this.
Do you have any suggestions?
The 1099-M with an amount in box 6 is supposed to be issued to the Medical Services Provider. It's for reflecting that business transpired (expense) between a business needing medical services and the person providing those services. Then, the Recipient of the 1099-M (the entity that got paid) is going to use this for confirmation that their own business income tax return has adequate income reported for purposes of the IRS.
Example: a client of mine is a phlebotomist operation, and for DOT and parental blood testing, she sometimes needs the services from a doctor. If it meets the reporting threshold, she will send that doctor and the IRS a 1099-M for those services, Box 6.
