The numbers are in!
2022 data prove once again that electronic billing slashes the time it takes for providers to get paid for treating injured workers in California (as long as claims administrators adhere to the law).
Below we list the 149 claims administrators to which daisyBill providers sent 100 or more bills in 2022, with average days to payment for each.
The majority of claims administrators honored the 15-working-day deadline to remit payment for medical treatment; some maintained even faster than required average days to payment — even for non-medical services not subject to the 15-day time frame (i.e. Medical-Legal, copy, and interpreter services).
However, too many claims administrators continue to flout the law, either failing to accept e-bills, or far exceeding the mandatory deadlines.
California regulators and legislators, take note: we are keeping score. Employers, providers, and injured workers deserve a system where accountability is the expectation.
