    Discount Dangers: The CA Provider’s Bill of Rights (Right V)

    Discount Dangers is a DaisyBill series on the ways some discount contracts unscrupulously reduce providers’ reimbursements. With this series we shine a light on the worst practices, to help providers fight back.

    We can’t state this strongly enough. In so many ways, the California workers’ compensation system is rigged against providers. That’s why it’s vital for providers to know exactly how the law protects them from unfair treatment and improper reimbursement. This is particularly crucial when it comes to discount contracts, which are often abused in ways that are more than just unfair; they’re also non-compliant.
