Liens retro UR (California)

Postby lacompfun on Tue Mar 26, 2019 7:09 pm


1.Denied case. Settles by C&R. Now liens are litigated.


1. What triggers the retro UR?

Seems like should be:

1. AOE COE trial. Other threshold issues like employment etc

2. If defenses loses those issues then retro UR triggered.

Any codes and cases with answers much appreciated.

Any threshold issue must be resolved prior to AOE/COE,coverage, application of contract must be resolved prior to triggering retro UR and need second bill review/IBR.

I don't have the codes handy, but until the threshold issues are resolve, then you UR/IMR and second bill review/IBR, which ever are applicable are deferred.
