Insurance Accepted


  • Dr. Foye evaluates and treats patients from near and far, including patients whose health insurance plans may be either “In-Network” or even “Out-of-Network” with his office.
  • No problem. Either way is fine.
  • Just check with Dr. Foye’s office before you schedule and they can answer your insurance questions.
  • The Initial Evaluation might be a Telemedicine visit, for your convenience.
  • In most cases, patients can then have an in-person office visit, and sitting-versus-standing coccyx x-rays, and a coccyx injection, all on the same day, if it is planned properly.
  • Some patients may need pre-authorization from their insurance company before a coccyx injection, but most do not. Either way is fine. Again, just check with Dr. Foye’s office staff.
  • Different health insurance plans have different co-pays, deductibles, or out-of-pocket costs. Again, Dr. Foye’s office staff can answer most of those questions for you.
  • Just send in your forms/paperwork, including your insurance information (insurance card, etc.). (Fax or mail these to Dr. Foye’s office.) Then call Dr. Foye’s office staff (973-972-2802) and they will help answer your questions and help you to receive expert medical care here.

INSURANCE, “In-Network”: Dr. Foye’s office is ~ In-Network with many insurance plans, including Medicare, nearly all versions of New Jersey Medicaid programs, New Jersey “Charity Care”, etc.

INSURANCE, including “Out-of-Network”: Blue Cross Blue Shield, UNITED HEALTHCARE, AETNA US HEALTHCARE, OXFORD and CIGNA. Even if you have these or other insurance plans that may be “Out-Of-Network” with our office, there is good news for you: you can usually still be treated here. Our staff routinely works with patients who have these insurance plans. The result is that most patients who are willing to travel here can indeed be treated here. Often this can be done even if you do not have out-of-network benefits. The office staff here are very experienced at helping patients who come here from around the world. The staff can answer your questions in advance of your visit, so that you have that information prior to your trip here. Just send in your paperwork and the office staff here will check it out for you and then they can go over it with you by phone.

Regarding coccyx x-rays done on Dr. Foye’s medical campus: Please check with your insurance company whether “University Hospital” in Newark, N.J. is in-network with your insurance plan. If not, then you may pay an out-of-network (out-of-pocket) fee to University Hospital for the sitting-vs-standing x-rays that are done at the start of most initial in-person evaluations to see Dr. Foye for coccyx pain. If you happen to be out-of-network, then there may be a few hundred dollars of out-of-pocket costs that you pay on the date that you have the x-rays done. This is typically very well worth it for the very helpful information that only very rarely can be obtained at other radiology departments.
