2015 in Review: Workers' Comp Average Days to Payment

January 19, 2016 by Catherine Montgomery

DaisyBill processes over 700,000 California workers’ comp bills per year with direct electronic connections to over 505 different claims administrators and payers. The transparency of electronic billing allows DaisyBill to granularly track the payment details of every single bill including:

  • Bill Type: Medical Treatment, Medical-Legal, Non-Treatment (Copy and Interpreter Services)
  • Submission Type: Original Bill or Request for Second Review
  • Days to Payment: Business and Calendar days

This article is part of a new multi-week series that analyzes California workers’ comp payment statistics derived from DaisyBill’s huge payment data.    

Medical Treatment Bills Average Days to Payment

For medical treatment bills submitted in 2015, the table below lists DaisyBill’s top 35 claims administrators by volume of bills along with the average count of business days from submission to payment.

Electronic Billing Good News 

  • Nearly all of the claims administrators comply with the section of California Labor Code § 4603.4 which mandates that claims administrators accept electronic billing from providers. This law became effective in October 2012, over three years ago.
  • Only two claims administrators on this list (designated in red) continue to struggle with processing electronic billing for their clients.
  • Nearly all of the claims administrators process electronic billing within the mandated timeframe of 15 working days from the date of the electronic submission.
  • Only five claims administrators on this list exceed the mandated timeframe of 15 working days (Average Business Days to Payment designated in red).
