Insurance

We participate with most local insurance plans, but you should speak your doctor’s office directly to verify your specific plan’s coverage.   Insurance plans are negotiated between insurance companies and employer groups.  Your individual coverage may require co-insurance, co-pays, or deductibles.  Some insurances require that you are pre-authorized to see an orthopaedic specialist, and some require a referral.  

Generally, we participate with:

  • Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans
  • Excellus Blue Cross & Blue Shield,  PPO and Indemnity plans
  • Blue Choice
  • Preferred Care
  • Aetna

If we do not participate with your plan, we can usually submit claims electronically and be paid by your carrier, but your coverage may be reduced if we are not “in network”. 

It is your responsibility to understand your own insurance. 

You may call our billing office at 585-723-2819 to discuss your individual coverage with our Patient Accounts Representatives.
