Insurance & Billing

About Insurance

Insurance plans that we participate with include the following:

 
  • Aetna
  • Rochester Blue Cross/Blue Shield (All PPO contracts)
  • CIGNA
  • Medicare
  • MVP
 
  • Lifetime Benefit Solutions
  • Some United Health Care Plans
  • Several other insurance plans

Please note: If you are a participant of an HMO, you need to have one of our doctors listed as your OB/Gyn doctor along with your primary care (internist) doctor.  If this is not done, your claim could be rejected and you will be responsible for the bill.

We are providers for the Women’s Health Partnership (Monroe County) and other NYS Healthy Women Partnerships. For information on screening services in other counties, visit the DOH website.

If you have any questions about the insurance plans we participate in, you may reach our Billing office at 585-244-4360. We will be happy to speak with you.

Practice Policies

Late Arrival Policy

If you arrive more than 15 minutes after your scheduled appointment time you may be asked to reschedule your appointment for a different date and time.  We make every effort not to disrupt the scheduled time of our other patients.

CoPays/Deductibles

The physicians at Women Gynecology and Childbirth Associates would like to inform you that if you discussed anything "above and beyond" a "routine" annual examination with your provider, or if you had other services (for example ultrasound, DXA scan, or a provider consultation during a diagnostic exam), there may be an extra co-payment applied to your claim, as required by your insurance company.

An annual examination consists of a complete breast exam, heart and lung check, gland check, pelvic exam and pap smear, and rectal exam if indicated.  What to expect at your Annual Well-Women Exam

Providing time to discuss other issues during an annual exam is an opportunity that we gladly give to our patients. Our providers feel that our patients should not be inconvenienced by having to make multiple trips to our offices to discuss these other issues.
