GERD Treatment Options Available To Verizon Beneficiaries
Lap Nissen Fundoplication
Nissen fundoplication is a surgical procedure designed to prevent acid reflux by reinforcing a weak lower esophageal sphincter with the patient's stomach.
Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication is an incision-free technique that reconstructs the defective muscular ring or lower esophageal sphincter which blocks acid reflux.
LINX® REFLUX management system
The LINX® System is a small, flexible band of magnets enclosed in titanium beads that is placed around the lower esophageal sphincter.
Verizon Beneficiary Anti-Reflux Procedure Coverage
Historically, Verizon has offered their employees Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance policies. Many of the Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO policies have covered all three procedures in the past, allowing their employees all available options to them in order to cure their Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease. When you call to make an appointment, our staff will look at your specific policy and be able to verify coverage and let you know your options.
