Our Story

Short version

At DaisyBill, we come to work every day because we want to solve the problems of workers’ compensation billing. The billing process for workers’ comp is a mess. Everyone has to jump through too many hoops, and nobody is happy with how it works: not doctors, not insurance companies, not claims administrators, employers, legislators, attorneys…and not injured workers.

We can fix this.

DaisyBill is cloud-based software for providers to electronically submit and manage workers’ compensation medical bills. Our founders spent decades in the industry and saw just how broken the system had become—and how to make it work. They built a technology solution that makes work comp billing more efficient, more transparent, and just plain better. While DaisyBill makes workers’ comp a win-win for all stakeholders, our clients absolutely love us. Bills get paid easily and quickly, and DaisyBillers can finally take control of their difficult work comp billing.


Long version

Catherine Montgomery and Sarah Moray founded DaisyBill in 2011, with the belief that smart technology could make workers’ compensation better for everybody. Between them, they had two decades of experience in medical billing and workers’ compensation. They had already founded ClarityMBR.com which, at the time, was one of the most visited workers' comp sites in California.

Their years in medical billing gave them first-hand knowledge of exactly how difficult it is to get paid for treating injured workers. With the changes brought by SB 863, Catherine and Sarah saw an opportunity to make the billing process better for doctors, patients, and insurers. The two friends realized that the new legislation opened the door to a host of systemic benefits, including electronic billing, information transparency, and speedy bill processing. Catherine and Sarah started DaisyBill to bring those benefits to California's workers' compensation community.

The Difficulty of Workers' Compensation

Workers’ compensation medical billing is an unwieldy compromise of a system that discourages providers, deprives injured workers, frustrates legislators’ best intentions, and presents an irresistible moral hazard to many participants in the system (yes, we used the word “moral”).

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. Catherine and Sarah saw first-hand how a broken billing system limits injured workers' access to the quality care they deserve.

Workers' Compensation … Can Actually Work

Catherine and Sarah envisioned a more functional workers’ comp system 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 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.

Co-Founder

Catherine has spent her career on the cutting edge of medical billing technology solutions. In 2005, she co-founded Clarity Medical Billing Resources with Sarah Moray. Clarity was a free and trusted resource for all parties involved in workers’ compensation. As the need for simplicity and transparency became more apparent, Catherine and Sarah transitioned out of Clarity to lead the way at DaisyBill.

Catherine attended Vanderbilt University and graduated with a B.A. in Economics. You won’t find her without her sidekick Tara, a four-year-old Pomeranian whose joyful and occasionally noisy presence in the office practically warrants a separate bio.
