DWC Form IBR-1 (Effective 02/2014) Page 1 American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com Yes No Amount in Dispute: INSTRUCTIONS FOR REQUEST FOR INDEPENDENT BILL REVIEW Overview: If the only dispute between a medical provider and a claims administrator regarding a bill for medical treatment services or a bill for medical-legal expenses is the amount of payment and the second bill review did not resolve the dispute, the provider may request independent bill review (IBR) from a conflict-free payment and billing expert. The Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) has contracted with an independent bill review organization (IBRO) to provide an efficient means of resolving workers' compensation billing disputes. IBR can be requested electronically or by submitting this form. The electronic form can be accessed at DWC's website at http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/IBR.htm. Form Instructions: The requesting provider must complete all fields in the Employee Information, Provider Information, and Claims Administrator Information sections. Be sure to list your correct National Provider Identifier (NPI) number and indicate your provider type and specialty in the checkboxes shown. Under Bill Information, select the applicable fee schedule under which the review will be conducted. IBR will only resolve billing disputes involving the amount of payment owed to the provider for services or goods rendered under a fee schedule adopted by DWC, or, if applicable, a contract for reimbursement rates under Labor Code section 5307.11. IBR will not determine: (1) a reasonable fee for services or goods where that category of services or goods is not covered by a fee schedule or a contract for reimbursement rates; or (2) the proper selection of an analogous code or formula based on a fee schedule or, if applicable, a contract for reimbursement rates, unless the fee schedule or contract allows for such analogous coding. Complete the remaining fields in the Bill Information section for the disputed service or good in dispute. · · · · · · · State the date of the second bill review decision.

Two or more requests for IBR, up to a maximum of twenty (20), by a single provider may be consolidated if DWC or the IBRO determines that the requests involve common issues of law and fact or the delivery of similar or related services. Consolidation is allowed when: (1) requests for IBR by a single provider involving multiple dates of medical treatment services involve one injured employee, one claims administrator, and one billing code under an applicable fee schedule or, if applicable, under a contract for reimbursement rate, and the total amount in dispute does not exceed $4,000.00; or (2) requests for IBR by a single provider involving multiple billing codes under applicable fee schedules or, if applicable, under a contract for reimbursement rates, with no limit on the total dollar amount in dispute and involves one injured employee, one claims administrator, and one date of medical treatment service.
