Does Dr. Finnerty bill insurance companies?Not currently but this may soon change. Dr. Finnerty is not a member of most insurance panels and counseling services must be paid for at the hourly rate in advance. However, Dr. Finnerty may resume billing Medicare in the near future and may explore opportunities to join a select number of insurance panels. Meanwhile, Dr. Finnerty can provide you with receipts in order to pursue reimbursement for any out-of-network benefits that your insurance plan may have.
Also, some of Dr. Finnerty's services are evaluations that health insurance typically doesn't cover. For example, health insurance typically doesn't cover one-time examinations for forensic/legal reasons or educational purposes (ex: IQ testing).
Are discounts available? Yes, there is a monthly payment planDr. Finnerty does not offer income-based sliding scale fees or similar discounts. However, pre-payment discounts are currently available for people willing to pay for a full month of services at a time (rather than week-to-week). The fee is competitive and covers up to 4 to 5 psychotherapy sessions during the month. Each session is approximately 45 minutes in length. The fee also includes any needed secure messaging with Dr. Finnerty in between sessions- Dr. Finnerty typically responds to messages within 24 hours on weekdays.
Psychotherapy services with Dr. Finnerty typically last at least 6 to 12 sessions weekly or every other week. Over time the visits tend to be spaced further apart and are geared towards preventing your problems from returning. A lower monthly fee may be available for individuals needing fewer sessions per month.To see the current monthly subscription fee amount visit this page.
Will Dr. Finnerty complete disability paperwork for his patients?Maybe. Dr. Finnerty will discuss with you whether FMLA leave, asking for workplace accommodations and/or using your short-term disability insurance or applying for disability is right for you. If it is clinically indicated then yes, Dr. Finnerty may complete the necessary paperwork. However, completing paperwork is unlikely to happen after only one treatment visit (though a forensic examination for this purpose could be scheduled). There may be an additional cost for completing paperwork depending on the amount of time the paperwork takes.
Please keep in mind that people who do NOT leave work or leave work for only a short period of time tend to have better long-term outcomes. If you are out of work currently, the faster you can get back to work the better if a return to work is your goal.
