Medicare just quit covering my Dexilant prescription and I am having acid reflux horrible again. My dr is trying to get them to approve it because nothing else I've tried ever helped noticably. What other GERD med is most similar to Dexilant? It has to be a generic form, or medicare won't cover it.

Hello, Cherie! How are you?

The reason they don't want to cover it is because it's not available as a generic, but there are several others that are, plus some are available over the counter.

Two would be Lansoprazole and Omeprazole, so you may want to ask your doctor about trying them.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I have been denied dexilant too, and cannot get help with payment.Medicare doesn't pay for it, and neither would Florida Blue before I got Medicare. I have tried many other drugs, and my doctor has filed grievance letters begging for coverage for me.I am not only a Crohn's patient,but have horrible gerd.I feel I am being tortured at this point.

Dexilants website has a card you can sign up for that you don't pay more than $20. I will be checking it out soon I'm afraid. Good luck.

If you get a prescription and send it to a Canadian druggist,you can get it for a third of the price.
