DaisyBill was co-founded in 2011 by workers’ compensation experts and co-owners of ClarityMBR, Catherine Montgomery and Sarah Moray.
DaisyBill's e-billing management software was born out of the belief that one piece of technology could forever change workers’ compensation for the better.
The Difficulty of Workers' Compensation
To secure fair payment for services rendered to injured workers, medical providers need to navigate and conform to an endlessly complex legal system comprised of literally thousands of regulations. Successfully billing for services rendered within workers’ compensation is extraordinarily difficult and time consuming.
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 Montgomery and Sarah Moray experienced the hardships of navigating the system, and witnessed firsthand provider frustration and the fallout from unpaid bills.
Catherine and Sarah dreamed of a more functional workers’ comp landscape where 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.
California Mandates that Claims Administrators Accept e-Bills
In 2010, the California Division of Workers’ Compensation announced that claims administrators would be required to accept bills electronically by October 18, 2012.
With e-billing regulations requiring more transparency, faster timelines, and greater accountability for everyone involved, Sarah and Catherine realized that the California mandate was the opportunity they needed to make their workers’ comp dreams a reality.
Workers’ Compensation Billing, Radically Simplified
In 2011, Sarah and Catherine founded DaisyBill and poured their workers’ comp expertise into DaisyBill’s foundation. In conjunction with founding developer Ben Liscio, they wrote every line of code around the needs of workers’ compensation bill submitters.
In July 2012, they launched a pilot program in California. What started as a system designed to simplify workers’ compensation billing has blossomed into a complete workers’ compensation e-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.
Perfecting the e-Billing Process, Nationwide.
Since e-billing for workers’ compensation is still in it’s infancy, it isn’t perfect. Yet. The DaisyBill team is working hard to move e-billing forward in a way that aligns with Catherine and Sarah’s vision for a functional Workers’ Comp system.
With e-billing mandates being implemented around the country, we plan to take what we’re learning in California to help improve workers' compensation around the nation.
