Exciting news for reflux surgery candidates! The LINX Reflux Management System is now covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. LINX is offered as an alternative to surgical fundoplication for the treatment of GERD, and is now available to over 15 million BCBS members.
LINX is a new, implantable device that consists of a series of magnetic beads held together by a titanium wire. The LINX device, designed to be a lifelong implant, is placed around the lower esophagus using laparoscopic surgery. Studies have found the LINX procedure to be a safe, effective, and durable treatment option for reflux.
