When an original bill is incorrectly denied or underpaid, DaisyBill advises filing a Second Review. Every request for Second Review submitted from DaisyBill is compliantly submitted using both a completed DWC Form SBR-1, as well as a compliant modified CMS 1500.
To store language for Request for Second Review reasons, use DaisyBill’s Second Review Reasons. When the claims administrator incorrectly applies a PPO/Network reduction to the bill, we recommend language similar to the Second Review reason below.
