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.
