There is a Breast Implant Explant Program Deadline
The final deadline to submit an Explant Claim to the SF-DCT is June 2, 2014. You must have acceptable Proof of Manufacturer before you can be considered for the Explant benefit. The Explant benefit is $5,000.00. To qualify for this benefit, you must have your Dow Corning implants removed and not replaced with silicone.
It can take six months or longer to schedule an explant surgery and to obtain the necessary medical records from your surgeon or hospital. If you are eligible to apply for this benefit, you should keep this deadline date in mind. Do not wait to discuss your explant surgery with your doctor. This should be done as soon as possible.

Dow Corning Explant Benefits Notice
EXPLANT DEADLINE IS JUNE 2, 2014
The Settlement Facility will mail letters to Class 5 and 6 claimants on April 26, 2013 reminding them of the Explant Deadline of June 2, 2014.
What is the Explant Deadline? To be eligible for the $5,000 Explant benefit (Class 5 only), you must have your Dow Corning breast implant removed by June 2, 2014 and you cannot receive another silicone gel breast implant after that. To file a claim, you must submit the Explant Form and the operative statement from the Explant surgery. Only claimants in Class 5 and 6.1 (non-U.S. Dow Corning breast implant claimants) are eligible for the Explant Payment.
June 2, 2014 may seem like a long time away, but our experience has been that it often takes up to 6 months or more to schedule an appointment with your surgeon, schedule the surgery, and obtain the necessary medical reports (such as the Operative Report) to submit a claim by the deadline.
If your Dow Corning breast implant is not removed by June 2, 2014, then you cannot apply for the Explant benefit.There is still money available to help you remove your defective Dow implants. There is money available to help you remove your defective breast implants
