    Where I am located, the amount of claims have dropped considerably. I am considering file examination on the side, on a contract basis. But I am unsure what is a fair fee per file to expect. This isn't for CAT work, just daily claims. I think I could reasonably review 10 small to average size claims per day. I have been in the field for nearly 3 years now and handled a great deal of reopened files, which I think would be beneficial experience. I have always had great comments on the completeness of my reports and estimates on my own assignments.

    So I ask...What would your time be worth??
     

    Thanks in advance;

    That is a tough one. Do you already have an offer on the table? I believe you are usually paid day rate for this type of service. Working from home or reporting to an office? I would guess $200.00 per day 5 days a week and I might consider it. As an adjuster you are worth $65.00 per hour.

    Yes, I have an offer, but cannot get them to budge with an amount / fee or even a ball park figure. So I have tried to obtain what would be a fair and equitable amount per hour, day, week, file, etc. I am unsure how to go about this since a small estimate and report could be so bad that it takes time and needs re working; a large one could be so well done that it would be easy to process. This is a delimmea. I appreciate anyone's help and input.....

    I know a staff adjuster who moon lighted for an IA firm in 05 (no conflict) on a seperate carrier's losses and got $15.00 per file on e files, he said he averaged $100 per hour for three hours each night.

    Its just like storm work the bad with the good billers.

    Thanks everyone for your input. This helps me with an idea of what would be fair for us both.
