DOWNLOAD ABSTRACT
Sleep Positioning vs. Reflux

In addition to providing superior torso elevation than head of bed (HOB) elevation and bed wedges, MedCline also facilitates sleeping on the left side (which is better for reflux than sleeping supine or right-side-down). Patented features of MedCline ensure that patients comfortable stay in this optimal inclined-side sleeping position, while they sleep, resulting in dramatic improvements in esophageal acid exposure, symptoms and quality of life. Watch how sleeping positioning affects nighttime reflux

Healthcare Professionals FAQ

Q: Is MedCline covered by any health insurance providers?
A:
 As of August 26, 2016, we no longer offer insurance coverage assistance for MedCline. Even with our dedicated team of reimbursement specialists, our success rate of getting MedCline covered by patients' insurance was less than 1%. If your office would like to help a patient determine coverage options, we recommend that MedCline be billed under code E1399: Durable Medical Equipment, Miscellaneous.

Q: Do patients need a prescription to buy MedCline?
A:
Patients do not need a prescription if purchasing MedCline from www.MedCline.com or from Amazon.com. 

Q: Can the MedCline Advanced Positioning Wedge be purchased alone? 
A:
 Yes. The Advanced Positioning Wedge allows your patients to enjoy the benefits of inclined, side-sleeping for 100% natural relief from painful nighttime acid reflux symptoms with their own, favorite pillow. The Advanced Positioning Wedge is recommended for those who prefer their own pillow, are naturally side-sleepers, tend to get hot during the night or are restless sleepers. 

Q: What if MedCline doesn’t work for my patient? Can it be returned?
A:
 Yes. Both the MedCline Reflux Relief System and the MedCline Advanced Positioning Wedge come with a 60-Night Relief Guarantee. This means that your patient has a full 2 months to try out MedCline and if for whatever reason it’s not working out, they can return it. We will even pay for the return shipping. This ensures that you won't end up with a patient upset with you for recommending a product that they weren’t happy with.
