1099s - Box 6, Box 7 or Box 14?

Faye S. Creech's Profile

We have some payments made to both claimant and attorneys for settlements for health claims. It is clear from the IRS website that we send the 1099MISC for the full amount to the attorney, however the recipients are questioning our box coding. Our system coded the amount to Box 6 (Medical payments) since it was settlement of a medical claim but they are asking for it to be recoded to Box 7 (Non Employee Comp). We now question whether it could be coded as Attorney Fees (Box 14)? Has anyone gotten an answer concern how to code these payments?
