Dr. Finnerty planned to return his fee to normal, however, upon reflection Dr. Finnerty plans to keep his fee set at a flat fee of $600 for the foreseeable future. This is a good value. However, Dr. Finnerty has introduced some new policies effective 7/22/2020. In the past Dr. Finnerty would simply refund your entire $600 if he accepted your case and then realized after reviewing your records that he was unable to write a nexus letter. Unfortunately, this meant that Dr. Finnerty’s time reviewing your records and providing you with feedback about your claim went uncompensated. For anyone first contacting Dr. Finnerty after 7/22/2020 Dr. Finnerty will refund a portion of the $600 fee minus Dr. Finnerty’s hourly fee of $160 to cover the time he spends reviewing your records and giving you feedback on your case.
