Catherine Montgomery and Sarah Moray founded DaisyBill in 2011, with the belief that one piece of smart technology could make workers’ compensation better for everybody. Catherine and Sarah had already founded ClarityMBR.com, at that time one of the most visited sites about workers’ comp in California.
In their years of experience in medical billing, they had first-hand knowledge of exactly how difficult it could be to get paid for treating injured workers. And in 2011, they saw an opportunity to make the billing process better for doctors, patients, and insurers.
The Difficulty of Workers' Compensation
Medical providers need to navigate an endlessly complex regulatory system if they want to get paid for treating patients hurt on the job. The workers’ comp system is vastly more complicated and more rule-bound than regular health insurance, and the administrative burden can be crushing for both doctors and insurers.
Within this landscape, many medical providers are reluctant or completely unwilling to treat injured workers, thereby greatly limiting the access that injured workers have to the quality care they deserve.
Ultimately, injured workers pay the price of this difficult system with their health.
A Workers' Compensation System … That Actually Works
With almost 2 decades of combined experience in medical billing and workers’ compensation, Catherine and Sarah experienced the frustration of a broken billing system and the fallout from unpaid bills.
They dreamed of a more functional workers’ comp landscape wherein easily prepared bills moved through claims administration smoothly. A system where payments were consistent and timely. And most importantly, a system where injured workers would have increased access to quality care.
Sarah and Catherine founded DaisyBill and poured their workers’ comp expertise into DaisyBill’s foundation. In conjunction with founding developer Ben Liscio, they built DaisyBill around the needs of workers’ compensation professionals. What started as a system designed to simplify workers’ compensation billing has blossomed into a complete workers’ compensation billing management suite. Every time a new pain point or new complexity arises for our users, DaisyBill’s offerings evolve to meet and overcome them.
Meet the DaisyBill Team
Catherine uses her deep industry knowledge of medical billing and workers' comp to lead the DaisyBill team. Catherine had been on the front lines of medical billing for over 10 years before founding Clarity Medical Billing Resources with Sarah Moray. Clarity was a free and trusted resource for all parties involved in workers’ compensation. When California's work comp system underwent seismic regulatory changes, Catherine and Sarah started DaisyBill to help providers negotiate the new billing landscape .
Catherine has a B.A. in Economics from Vanderbilt University.
Sarah's broad experience in workers' compensation and medical billing spans over 10 years, ranging from ground level experience in medical practices to consulting to co-founding DaisyBill. Along with Catherine, Sarah had also started ClarityMBR.com, which became the go-to resource for workers' compensation billing issues in California. At DaisyBill, Sarah is our evangelist-in-chief, spreading the good word about DaisyBill. She's awesome at showing providers how DaisyBill turns an apparently losing proposition (getting paid for treating injured workers) into a much easier, more transparent, and actually profitable part of a medical practice.
Sarah has a B.A. in Communication from UC Santa Barbara and has a passion for cooking, travel, and river rafting.
