1. Neurosurgeon Michael Verdon, DO, partnered with Marvel Group to offer a spine surgery warranty covering spinal fusion patients.
2. RedHill launched a money-back warranty program for its Helicobacter pylori eradication therapy, Talicia. If the medication does not work following a full treatment course, patients are eligible for a refund.
