Workflow for Second Bill Reviews for Work Comp

July 22, 2015 by Catherine Montgomery

Last week we gave a webinar on Second Bill Reviews (SBRs) for workers’ comp. We covered both the correct way to submit SBRs (for providers) and the compliant way to process SBRs (for claims administrators).

So here’s a sort of cheat sheet for the many components of the SBR process: it shows the timelines, the triggering events, and the different types of SBRs. In addition, it notes the relevant subsections of DWC regulation, drawn from CCR § 9792.5.5.

In my next post, I’ll share some practice tips about how to effectively submit SBRs so as to collect every dollar due.
