A guide to the deadlines by which Pondimin & Redux users must file their new or worsened injury claims with the AHP Diet Drug Settlement Trust.
Timing of Qualifying Injuries:
Qualifying injuries must have been diagnosed prior to the DDR's 80th birthday. Beyond that, what injuries qualify, and when they must have occurred, depends on whether the DDR participated in the Seventh Amendment Supplemental Fund.
Deadlines For Filing A Matrix Compensation Claim:
The deadline for filing a Matrix Compensation claim with the AHP Settlement Trust is four years from the date the DDR was first diagnosed as having the last occurring condition or event upon which the claim for Matrix Compensation Benefits is based.
If you have not yet received Matrix Compensation and wish to file an Original Claim
If you opted-out of the 7th Amendment and have not yet received Matrix Compensation benefits, and you can show that any matrix level condition was present before December 31, 2015, you may file an Original Claim for Matrix Compensation.
Have already recieved Matrix Compensation and wish to file a Supplemental Claim
If you have already received Matrix Compensation and did not participate in the 7th Amendment Supplemental Fund you may file a Supplemental Claim if you have been diagnosed with a medical condition that qualifies for a Matrix Compensation Level and dollar value above any previous Matrix Compensation award you have received.
Participants in the Seventh Amendment Supplemental Fund
If you participated in the 7th Amendment Supplemental Fund the deadline for filing a claim has expired.
