Status Of Premium Payments
We do not have an update on when the Finance Committee will make a recommendation to pay the partial Premium Payments to claimants whose payment was stopped because of the ruling by the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. The Claimant Advisory Committee strongly believes – and has urged the Finance Committee – that these payments should be made immediately. We are hopeful that they will file a recommendation with the Court sometime this year. Once a recommendation is filed, the District Court must still approve it.
There is no update on when the final 50% Premium Payment will be made.
Increased Severity Claims
The Claims Office is now accepting claim filings for “Increased Severity”. You may qualify for an additional settlement if:
Your disease claim was approved in Disease Option 1 (such as ACTD or ANDS disease claims), AND your disease now qualifies for Severity Level A (100% total disability);
Your disease claim was approved in Disease Option 2. You can apply for an Increased Severity Level if you now have a disease or condition that qualifies for a higher level payment.
The deadline to file for Increased Severity claims is June 3, 2019. If you do not have an attorney the Dow Corning Breast Implant Helpline can help you.
