Employees of PepsiCo, the world’s second-largest food and beverage business, now have the option to travel to Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore for cardiac and complex joint replacement surgeries. The travel surgery benefit has been extended to PepsiCo’s domestic employees and their dependents – almost 250,000 people.

PepsiCo, which sponsors its own self-funded medical plans, will waive deductibles and co-insurance for those who elect to have their surgery at Johns Hopkins. The company will also cover the travel and lodging expenses to Baltimore for the patient and a companion.

Hopkins is offering the procedures in a “bundled” rate, an all-inclusive rate for hospital and physician charges and certain preoperative testing.
