  15. Lena Anderson says:

    Like so many, I wish to know if I should stop making payments to (3) insurance policies. Who do I contact if you can’t give me the answer?

    ADMIN – Hi Lena,

    This question is best answered by your own attorney. We don’t know what the risks are associated to your policy or if the insurance carrier will now comply with the terms and conditions set forth in the policies they sold.

  16. Lena Anderson says:

    I have 3 policies. Which is the one being sued? You ask for policy #, should I enter all three?

    ADMIN – Hi Lena,

    It would be best if you contact the class action admin to ask for additional assistance.

  17. david horning says:

  20. Stephen Royster says:

    I policy was bought in my name back in 1973. I cashed it in sometimes between 2014 and 2016. Am i still qualified for the claim? However i did fill out a claim form on-line. The policy had poor benefits. The Health Extras part would only pay $100 (one time) for the lost of an eye or limb and was no longer payable after 65 years of age. I will be 60 years old July 2017.

    ADMIN – Hi Stephen,
    Based on what you are telling me you appear to be a member of the class. Please double-check with the class admin to confirm your claim is valid.

  21. Elaine Showe says:

    Where can you get info on the settlement for claimants? There are plenty of web sites showing what the attorneys share of the suit will be ; what about the people affected by this suit? Who and when will results for the claimants be posted? Is there a contact person? the web site giving the #844-245-3767 is not giving needed info. The web shows the case was heard on April 27, 2017. Please advise.

    ADMIN –

    After the attorneys as well as other expenses are paid there will be between 8 to 9 million left which will be distributed among the class members submitting a valid claim.

    • Stephen Royster says:

      Our court system seems to love the Class Action Law Suits. This keeps the courts from being backed up. However, the lawyers and those close to these types cases seem to do well financially. Those who were hurt or shafted in some way get only pennies.The pay-offs should always be large enough so the people that were affected will get a decent settlement. Let the lawyers and other close to the cases and court fees be a different amount from the settlement pay-off.

      ADMIN – Hi Stephen,

      There is always the option of going after the companies of your own. You are not required to join the class.

    When can we receive our settlement and how much will it be thanks

    ADMIN – Hi Lecia,

    The class action administrator has not set a date.

  30. John wicevic says:

    No way to contact administration at website .will they post when checks are sent out?

    ADMIN – Hi John,

    The admins generally post an update on their page.

  31. Daymond Jones says:

    how can we find out how many people were in the class action?

    ADMIN – Hi Daymond,

    I don’t think that info is generally disclosed but you can certainly give it a try by writing to the admin.

  32. Cher says:

    (a). Response from the Class
    The deadline by which Class Members could object to or exclude themselves from the
    Settlement was March 10, 2016. To date, only one (1) person claiming to be a class member
    filed an objection and only seven (7) individuals, or 0.0005%, have elected to opt out. See Joint
    FA Decl. at ¶¶ 5-6; Hammer Decl. at ¶ 14.
    One objector in 1.3 million, and the seven (7) exclusions represent a miniscule
    percentage of the Class. This Court has noted that such a response is indicative of the fairness of
    the settlement, and provides further proof that it should be approved.
    These numbers amount to miniscule fractions of the Settlement
    Class (approximately .0005% [opt-outs] and .0001% [objections],
    respectively). The paucity of negative feedback in the face of an
    extensive notice plan leads the Court to conclude that the
    Settlement Class generally and overwhelmingly approves of the
    Settlement.

    • Roscoe bassett says:

      Hello, I filled out and mailed my info back I never got a response or weather or not I’m getting anything back or not I’d like to know if I’m getting something and when? I mail a letter a month ago and got no response

  37. Francine says:

    I received a card in the mail with explanation of the class action rebates. First of alI I would like to send my deepest sympathy for the love ones of others that have passed on and they are at peace now .Opportunities are not missed there just taking by other people. My mother would tell me,” don’t look for anyone to give you anything even if a person tells you they have a financial gift for you, if you don’t get it you won’t be disappointed when you don’t received what you were expecting”. I was taught to always stand for something and I won’t have to worry about falling for anything. I have more time than money. I’m waiting on Jesus and the USA to unite and be alright. Everyone that has a rebate on the way, what’s for you you’ll have it.

    I spoke with someone they said never received my claim There’s anything I be able to do now….Thak you

    ADMIN – Hi Olivia,

    No, if they did not receive your claim and you don’t have evidence of having submitted it there is nothing that can be done.

    • Cher says:

      How did you submit your claim

      • Cher says:

        If you submitted your claim online they gave you a confirmation number. If you have that claim number hold on tight to it that’s your proof. Make a copy of it . Send them the copy but you keep the original paper you wrote the confirmation number on. Send the letter certified and ask for a return receipt. That way you have proof that you tried to reach the administrator. Good luck

        • Olivia saraiva says:

          Cher, The only prove I have its the class member Id and the certificate for 1.000.00.00 dollars I did paid for this insurance company for 15 years…I left a message to the attorney never called back and sent a copy of my class member to the p.o Box 60167…Thank you

          • Cher says:

            Keep your original paper. Make a copy of the paper work and write them a letter explaining your proof of the policy and the member number you received. Keep this information because if you need to go to court they would see that you have been trying to contact them to resolve this issue. Dont forget send it certified with a return receipt. Wish you luck

    There are over one hundred thousand people in this 65 dollars a person is what it comes too

  63. Audrey says:

    It is sad that people will not get their money back that they paid in all they’re going to get back is around 60 some dollars because 138,000 people are in this….

  64. A.M.Whiteside says:

    65.00 does not cover insurance payments throughout the years members have paid into ! Why should it take now til Sept. to send out the checks ? All members are not entitled to the same amount & if so it’s a terrible injustice to all Class Members !!!

  65. Cher says:

    I hope the members at least get the money they paid into the policy back.

  66. Audrey says:

    If there are 138,000 class-action members if you divide the money with that it amounts to everyone getting 60 some dollars. So I don’t think anyone’s going to get the money back that everyone has paid in and the lawyer should’ve counted heads before deciding what to except as a settlement

  67. Cher says:

    If you look at the court documents one insurance group will be getting more than the other.

  68. Cher says:

    The Administrator should let us know what is going on with the checks.

    ADMIN – Hi Cher,

    I agree.

  69. Mary says:

    You need to do the math again because if there are 138,000 thousand in this then if everyone gets a thousand that will be 138.000 dollars and I thought this was in millions.

  70. cheryl erb says:

    I filed your form in mid-December 2016, and have received nothing. When can I expect to receive my share?

    cordially,

    Cheryl erb My email address at that time was caerb4619@yahoo.com. I no longer have that email address.

    ADMIN – Hi Cheryl,

    I don’t know the distribution date yet. When I do I will happily share the info.

  71. Cher says:

    This settlement took from the people so only the lawyer would get paid off the people.

  72. Cher says:

    Sent a bs post card saying that because there are more than 680,000 class members, each person would receive less than 75 cents. Any they are gonna take our money and give it to a charitable organization.

  73. Cher says:

    And not any

  74. Cher says:

    I say they need to send everybody that so called 75 cent check.

  75. Jesse Slocum says:

    I filed a claim before the deadline, have not heard anything, do you have a time frame on distribution yet.

    ADMIN – Hi Jesse,

    Nothing yet

  76. A.M.Whiteside says:

    I read the Health Extras Settlement update that says there is at least 135,000 Class Members that the Admin. has to investigate & tabulate each claim.They anticipate distribution to all valid Class Members in the next few months. You can read the update your self by going to http://www.HealthExtrasSettlement.com

  77. Joy says:

    All this over thinking! Come on people, have faith! Watch for mail somewhere around the 27th of July. Happy spending!

  78. John Detweiler says:

    I mailed out march,2017. But I can’t find policy number#??. Will u sent me the policy number??
    Will u help me??

    ADMIN – Hi John,

    We don’t have that information. We are like a newspaper of class actions.

  79. A.M.Whiteside says:

    You can call HealthExtras ADMIN. (844)245-3767 as well for latest update on distribution of Class Members Checks.

  80. Debbie Soberg says:

    Inquiring about this claim.i was billed for yrs on american express card for this insurance.i mailed my card back in march.

    ADMIN – Hi Debbie,

    UPDATE: The Court held a hearing on April 27, 2017, and granted Final Approval of the Settlement on that date. The Settlement Administrator has received over 135,000 Proof of Claim Forms and is in the final stages of fully processing all of the Claims and calculating the distribution of the net Settlement Funds. This work will be completed as promptly as time permits, given the need to investigate and tabulate each Claim. At this point, we anticipate distribution to valid Class Member-Claimants to occur in the next few months. Please notify the Settlement Administrator of any change of address (click ‘Contact’ at right). Thank you for your patience.

  81. Catherine Cusprinie says:

    Have not heard anything or have I been able to find out anything about this settlement. My claim number is: 1735646. Could you give me some information please. Thank you.

    ADMIN – Hi Catherine,

    For Cher& Stephen Royster : The UPDATE is self explanatory,which was posted around the middle of July that states it will take up to at least 2 months 4 distribution of checks to all valid Class Members & that puts it at Sept. no later than !!!

  83. Linda Davis says:

    My name is Linda Davis. I was heart broken when I heard healthextras Ins. Went bankrupt. ID # 30887KBDVPCXG Will I be getting my refund. I was paying for this for several years.

    ADMIN – Hi Linda,

    Did you file a claim?

  84. Rose bell says:

    I file a claim will I get a refund

  85. John wicevic says:

    I called today and no distribution date has been set yet

  86. Mercedes E. Serrano says:

    This is the second . time I send a comment,no body tell me nothing ,
    I did everything I have to do to be part of this settlement.
    I go to ask again, Im part of this Settlement?

    ADMIN – Hi Mercedes,

    We don’t know. We are not the class action administrator.

  87. John Holmes says:

    Any up date

    ADMIN – Hi John,

    September from what I hear.

  88. Rev. Herbert Thompson says:

    Did you say the Distribution will be some time in September?

    ADMIN – Hi Reverend,

    That is what I keep hearing.

  89. Tammie James says:

    Have anyone receive a settlement check yet

  90. Cher says:

    Any updates on the settlement?

    ADMIN – Hi Cher,

    No

  91. Paulette Mundy says:

    Hi I already fill the claim form and submitted on line from March 2017, and I still have not bin contacted by you as yet please let me know what’s going on with my claim thanks

    ADMIN – Hi Paulette,

    For questions about your claim please contact the class action admin.

  92. Luz Matos says:

    Since the phone number 844-245-3767 is a pre recorded message, will this particular pre-recorded message also let us know when these checks will mail out? My submission was in December 2016. Also will the website update as well with the approximate dates they will mail out?

    ADMIN – Hi Luz,

    Not likely, but the admin will probably post on the official page for the class settlement.

  93. william l thomas says:

    Hello, my name is William Thomas and I had two policies with Stonebridge and Health xtras for many years. To all those class members trying to find out about settlement checks I would suggest called the Settlement Administrator being Heffler Claims Group at 1-855-711-8800. I call every month and just today spoke with a person by the name of ED. He told me that all claims are being investigated and that hopefully settlement checks will be released by the end of the year. I think by the way he answered my questions he was just simply stalling and really did not know what to tell me. I am very frustrated as probably a lot of other class members are so I hope that by giving this telephone number all class members who want to find out why it is taking so long can call and vent their frustrations by asking why it is taking so long.

  94. Laurie says:

    While they collect the interest on the money.

    ADMIN – Hi Laurie,

    What money?

    • Cher says:

      Will the settlement money collect interest

      ADMIN – Hi Cher,

      I don’t think so. Even if it did the interest rates here in the US are horrible.

    • Laurie says:

      The settlement money that is to be paid out.

      ADMIN – Hi Laurie,

      The don’t collect any interest. Monies are not placed in interest-bearing accounts.

      • Laurie says:

        Thank you for the information regarding the money not being put in an interest bearing account. I must admit, I’m extremely surprised.

        ADMIN – Hi Laurie,

        Keep in mind that interest is not what it used to be. You are lucky if you get 1/2 of a percent APR

  95. Jesse Slocum says:

    Have we gotten a date yet, for sending settlement checks out. I thought it would be this mo. (Sept.) but after reading some remarks are we now looking in Oct. Have the attorney’s been paid. Why is this taking so long.

    ADMIN – Hi Jesse,

    Usually cases are delayed due to claim validation which is very intensive as the admin is accountable to the judicial system for the accuracy of each claim they pay. As for the attorneys getting paid I truly hope they got their check already because they already did their job. At this point the party responsible for distribution is the class action administrator.

  96. Cher says:

    I GUESS THE UPDATE WAS NOT SELF EXPLANATORY ITS OCTOBER NOW.

    ADMIN – Hi Cher,

    Why are you screaming? Remember, we at ClassActionRebates care for you and we are trying our best to keep you informed.

  97. Craig says:

    Is it so hard to send out a letter saying we received your claim and whe are expecting a distribution about date. Just so all of us can kind of feel like were not being jerked around. Also a rough amount that would be paid out. As for this person who is administration wouldn’t it be easier to have some kind of contact with this attorneys. I think that if these payouts are so small to each claimant why dont we all band together and submit our own lawsuit against the lawyers who come out smelling like a multi million dollar rose.

    ADMIN – Hi Craig,

    The purpose of a class action administrator is to manage the monies in a way that you the claimant get the largest amount possible. If they spend their money on clerical tasks such as having many people answering the phone or sending all manner of letters there will be less and less for the class members. You can certainly contact the attorneys, their phone is available via the long notice.

  98. Andrea Randle says:

    When will we receive any monies? I’ve sent inquires. No response

    ADMIN – Hi Andrea,

    Some settlements take years.

  99. Andrea, says:

    How do we get in touch with the Class action Admin?
    Why don’t we have any contact info

    ADMIN – Hi Andrea,

    Hi ,
    As many other peoples I also received post card in march and I filled it out . Received 7 digits claim number but still did not here and received any updates . did anyone had?
    Thank you

  101. Jordan says:

    Hello, maybe if everyone would leave them alone they could actually do their work. Everyone calling them and talking to them just makes them take longer. Also you could be messing them up they are making sure they have the correct amount of people. If you keep calling they may end up giving some of your money to somebody who doesn’t even belong to this lawsuit. So I suggest all of you people who keep bothering them leave them alone so they can do their job. I would like to get the most money possible but if you people keep calling and complaining it makes their job that much harder. Thank you all for reading my post

    ADMIN – Hi Jordan,

    Preach it!! The more money spent in administration the less money for class members.

  102. Cher says:

    Calling them don’t have nothing to do with messing up your money. I’m quite sure that’s not the person doing the payout. So people keep calling to update your information. Know I am preaching now.lol

  103. Linda Davis says:

    Are some refund checks were distributed? How the process going? Please update with me

    ADMIN – Hi Linda,

    I have no new information regarding this settlement.

  104. David says:

    I paid into this Health Extra scam every month for 6 -8 years. I would like to see a check. Anybody know anything?

  105. beverly hoffmann says:

    it is now oct and still no answer from this law suit this is my id number30887kb4q4gng my name Beverly Hoffmann husband was russlee or rusty

    ADMIN – Hi Beverly,

    We don’t have any updates on this settlement. As soon as we have one we will share it with our followers.

  106. Justin says:

    Update 10/30/17

    Official website now states that they are in the final stages of calculating and fully processing all claims and checks should happen in the next few weeks.

  107. John says:

    OK, do the math. Most (all?) of us paid in a lot more than what we will receive. Say of the 150K requests to be a member of the class 100K receive awards (to be conservative). Since the settlement is for 150M then 150M/100K amounts to some $150/claim if all claims were equal. Another example of how class actions do nothing but penalise the guilty and finance the lawyers filing suit.

    ADMIN – Hi John,

    You always have the option to opt out and go after corporations on your own.

    • Linda says:

      Admin is what John saying is true?

      ADMIN – Hi Linda,

      Based on the 135k valid claims I suspect the checks will be for less than $50 each.

    • John says:

      I know hardly anyone else would be able to afford that possible route. I also made a little bit of a mistake in calculations. I simply forgot about all the lawyer fees. I suspect that most everyone will get no more than $25. They said that the checks went out earlier this month. Has anyone received one?

  108. Velma Davenport says:

    I got a policy through J. C. Penney with Stonebridge Life Insurance Company, Policy/Certificate #72L41H5427. I received a card from your company that I needed to sign and return it before March 31, 2017. I signed and dated the card March 13, 2017, however, I have not received any information on when the funds will be disbursed.

    ADMIN – Hi Velma,

    We don’t have specifics but according to some of the updates I have seen the funds will be released in the next few months.

  109. Cher says:

    • Sherry k johnston says:

      How do I talk to someone about a check I got for $7.41 cents and my last name has changed and what is it for

      ADMIN – Hi Sherry,

      You contact the class action administrator. Their info is posted on the page specific to each settlement. I doubt you received a check for such a low amount in association to the HealthExtras settlement.

    • John wicevic says:

      I figured I paid in around $3700 I end up getting back. $758. Check came in the mail today

      ADMIN – Hi John,

      Thanks for the info.

  116. Cher says:

    Today i received my check for Seven dollars and forty one cent. Good Luck to everybody else

  117. Cher says:

    Very disappointed

    ADMIN – Hi Cher,

    Yes, this is a very sad settlement. I agree with you.

  118. lewis Johnson says:

    I don’t know why I never received a confirmation of ever processing my claim. I hope it arrives as expected

  119. Audrey says:

    OMG these lawyers really dropped the ball on this one they should have gotten a headcount before settling.class members didn’t even receive what they paid and I for one had the health extras and the Stonebridge life this check maybe paid for one month out of six years so yeah these lawyers definitely dropped the ball they got rich that’s for sure….. and don’t get me wrong I wasn’t looking to get rich but if there’s a class-action lawsuit going on I expect my money back that I paid in plus all the years of interest on my CC

    ADMIN – Hi Audrey,

    I see you point and understand your frustration.

  120. Sherry k johnston says:

    Can u please call me 17125794347

    ADMIN – Hi Sherry,

    I can’t. I am not the class action administrator and I don’t have the authority to help you with any matters related to this settlement.

  121. Shirley says:

    Received my check today. $7.41. Happy spending everyone!

  122. Mary Randle says:

    So sad I paid for this for fourteen years and they send me a check for eighty dollars. Then some get seven hundred dollars .They probably was in for a short time.

  123. StevenP says:

    when will people realize this is NOT where you file claims/ask for information on their claims. I wonder how these people were smart enough to file in the first place. Sheesh. You have the patience of a saint dealing with these “very peculiar crowd”

  124. Mot says:

    Total scam… I also paid more into this insurance and received $22.47 from the settlement. They really screwed some people. Thanks for nothing, at least I can use it for my children…9,11, 12 years old for Christmas… so disappointing.

  125. Karen Jacobs says:

    Hi, Received a check today for $7.41. Is this the amount we are getting? A waste of time really!!!

    ADMIN – Hi Karen,

    Are you sure this is your HealthExtras check and not your Revlon check?

  126. Marty says:

    I also received a check for $7.41. is this just to keep us waiting for the hundreds of dollars we are to get?

    ADMIN – Hi Marty,

    Are you sure your check was for HealthExtras? The amount looks like the Revlon DNA check.

    • Robert Caldwell says:

      I recieved a check for $7.41 also. Is this some kind of joke. Why waste our efforts so the attorneys can get rich and the people that were wronged get a slap in the face. I see the attorneys recieved over 5 million for their fee plus an exorbitant amount for expenses. The courts should be ashamed of themselves for letting attorneys take advantage of their clients this way.

  127. Rose McQuaig says:

    That’s messed up!!! Scared to see mine!!!

  128. Rose McQuaig says:

    Money is still going to them from my checking account every month. Is that fraud? An can I sue?

    ADMIN – Hi Rose,

    I can’t provide you with legal counsel. This settlement has been satisfied and you no longer have recourse. If you feel your policy is fraudulent it is best that you contact your local government agency tasked with insurance regulation.

  129. Marty says:

    Yes, it’s not from Revlon. Although maybe the Revlon would have help the worry loves waiting for this rebate. Anyway according to my calculations, 7.41x 135,000 comes to $1,000,350. What happened to the other $13,000,000+ left over…

    ADMIN – Hi Marty,

    I am hearing reports of people getting checks in the hundreds. Perhaps it was based on an allotment model on how you were impacted personally?

  130. Mary Randle says:

    Don’t worry people it will probably show up on 20/20 investigative reporting about fraudulent settlements Keep your eyes and ears open. You can’t tell me it took seven months to calculate 7.41.

  131. Rose McQuaig says:

    My claim form came in march, I fill it out and mailed back! Still haven’t received any check! Am I gonna receive one?

    ADMIN – Hi Rose,

    Contact the class action administrator. The checks were issued a few days ago. Yours was probably lost in the mail or deemed invalid.

  132. Christina says:

    We got a check for over $300. Totally surprised.

  133. Kathleen says:

    How do I check if my settlement amount has been mailed to me? I do have my claim number.

    ADMIN – Hi Kathleen,

    You reach out to the class action administrator using the contact information we provide above.

  134. Kathleen says:

    I was able to go to healthextrassettlement.com and submit an email of inquiry.

  135. John says:

    Are checks still being distributed? Never got mine. Calling or form filling the admin only accesses a recording or receives a form response.

    ADMIN – Hi John,

    Checks were distributed a couple of weeks ago. If you are having issues using the case-specific phone number reach out to the main contact number for the administrator. You can find the info here
