For Individual Debtors Filing a Joint Federal Income Tax Return:
The Treasury Offset Program automatically refers debts to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for offset. Your Federal income tax refund is subject to offset under this program. If you file a joint income tax return, you should contact the IRS before filing your tax return to determine the steps to be taken to protect the share of the refund which may be payable to the non-debtor spouse.

For Debtors that Share a Tax Identification Number:
Section 1866 (j)(6) of the Social Security Act authorizes the Secretary of Health and Human Services (the Secretary) to make any necessary adjustments to the payments of an applicable provider or supplier who shares a TIN with an obligated provider or supplier, one that has an outstanding Medicare overpayment. The Secretary is authorized to adjust the payments of such a provider or supplier regardless of whether it has been assigned a different billing number or National Provider Identification Number (NPI) from that of the provider or supplier with the outstanding Medicare overpayment.

Federal Salary Offset:
If the facility ownership is either a sole proprietorship or partnership, your individual salary(s) may be offset if you are, or become, a federal employee.

If you have filed a Bankruptcy Petition:
If you have filed a bankruptcy petition or are involved in a bankruptcy proceeding, Medicare financial obligations will be resolved in accordance with the applicable bankruptcy process.
