Like most medical practices, Rochester Regional Health Immediate Care requires payment at the time of service. Fees vary depending on the level of service provided. We accept most major insurance plans. Urgent care fees and co-pays are typically lower than those charged by emergency rooms.
At the time of service, patients are required to pay the urgent care co-pay as determined by their insurance carrier (usually $25 - $75). This co-pay is typically substantially less than that charged by hospital emergency departments. We are a member of the Rochester Regional Domestic Network.
A pre-payment deposit of $150 is required prior to service for patients who maintain membership in High Deductible Plans. If deductible requirements have been satisfied, with verification from the insurance company, only the co-pay (determined by your insurance carrier) is required.
As a service to our senior population, we participate with Medicare Part B. We also participate with various Medicare Advantage Plans, sometimes called "Part C" or "MA Plans," that are offered by private companies. If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan or a secondary plan and your insurance card says “Medicare,” Federal law provides for you to be seen at any emergency room or qualified urgent care center.
A pre-payment of $150 is required from every patient who maintains membership in a non-participating insurance plan. We will “courtesy bill” all plans, meaning we will submit the claim on the patient’s behalf, and the insurance company may reimburse the patient depending on his or her contracted plan.
A pre-payment deposit of $240 is required from every patient who presents to Immediate Care without valid health insurance coverage, or is on Medicaid, or who is otherwise a non-insured private pay patient.
Immediate Care providers and staff are trained to diagnose and treat most non-life threatening injuries and illnesses. Through our sister organization, Pulse Occupational Medicine, our experienced healthcare professionals also provide a full array of occupational and industrial medicine services.

Do you have questions? Good, because we have answers! And if we don’t answer your question here, please feel free to contact the Site Administrator at the Immediate Care center nearest you, or our corporate office. Please note that, for the safety of our patients, we cannot give medical advice of any kind via the Internet or phone.
An urgent care center is used for episodic care for patients with medical conditions that require treatment. When experiencing a non-life threatening situation (but could lead to potentially harmful outcome if not treated in a timely fashion), a patient can receive treatment at Immediate Care rather than seeking treatment at an emergency room. Patients should inform their Primary Care physician of such visit and consult him or her for follow up care. If the patient is in a life-threatening situation, please call 911 right away for care.
Immediate Care is a full-service urgent care center, meaning that we have physicians, diagnostic tools and labs on-site so we can diagnose and treat most patients in one visit. This saves time and money for patients and insurance companies.
No, not all urgent care centers are alike! The quality of providers and the level of services vary widely. To assure the highest quality care, look for a center that is accredited by The Joint Commission, which is recognized nationwide as the preeminent organization for healthcare accreditation. Immediate Care is one of the very few urgent care centers in the country that has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval. This signifies our commitment to continuously achieving the highest national standards for safety and quality of care.
No, you never need an appointment to visit Immediate Care. Come to Immediate Care when you need prompt medical care. You can, however, choose your arrival time through our online self-scheduling tool, InQuicker (https://immediatecareny.inquicker.com/). This helps us prepare for your arrival and speed up your visit.
Most patients are treated and released in about an hour. However, visit times vary depending on the number of patients at the center and the severity of their injuries or illness. Patients who require tests, such as x-rays or labs, may require some additional time.
Immediate Care centers are staffed by board-certified physicians who are skilled in the treatment of non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses. All of our providers—physicians, physician assistants, nurses and radiological technicians—are dedicated to providing excellent medical care in a compassionate, respectful manner.
Our fees vary depending on the level of services provided. Generally our fees are approximately one-third of those charged by emergency departments for similar procedures. Patients are required to provide payment or proof of insurance prior to treatment.
Immediate Care accepts most major insurance plans. Co-pays are determined by your insurance plan, but are usually much less than those for an emergency room visit or those for free-standing emergency departments.
