    I purchased provgil

  2. Brittany Kinder says:

    I purchased Provigil around March 2011
    However, I have no proof.

    ADMIN – Hi Brittany,

    Please refer to your pharmacist for evidence.

  3. Sara E Dodson says:

    I have taken Provigil and/or Modafinil (when it came out on the market as the generic version) for many, many, many years. Even with insurance and having to meet our Deductible and Co-pay every new year, this prescription would be the first to be filled and, of course, was the most expensive! I have always cringed and would get so upset wondering where we were going to get the money just for one necessary-to-function drug! To this day, I physically feel myself get uptight when I think about the expense! Sadly, I have been only able to obtain this one record for January 2012 due to the neurologist’s office changing/updating how records are kept and so, they no longer have access to anything prior to that date.

    ADMIN – Hi Sara,

    Your source for records is actually the pharmacy.

    • Sara E Dodson says:

      Right, thank you, however, the pharmacy prior to 2012 has only this one record due to how long records are kept and sadly, since this claim is since 2006, that is the only record I was able to produce.

  4. Darrcel Bailey says:

    I USED THIS BACK IN 2008

    • Susan says:

      I used during the entire period, before & after. Sorry to hear. Did u get receipts or file ur claim with an estimate. I hope the extended deadline means we didn’t have to file Anything by yesterday. Do u know? Thx. Take care!

  5. Darrcel Bailey says:

    I used the product in 2008

  6. Amanda M Short says:

    Is there an online claim form

    ADMIN – Hi Amanda,

    There is.

  7. deborah little says:

    I used this product in 2014

  8. sandra hansen says:

    There is an on-line form available on the AG Provigil Settlement Website, or am I missing something?

    ADMIN – Hi Sandra,

    There is, just look at the top a tab reads file a claim.

  9. sandra hansen says:

    “While the class action is online, the actual form is a paper form that must be printed”.

    Does this mean that if we file a claim online we have to print it out and send it by mail?

    ADMIN – Hi Sandra,

    The page is now updated to include both digital and printable.

  10. Steve says:

    Hello,
    I spent thousands of dollars on Provigil during this time, and could easily get proof, but I live in California. Does that mean that I am excluded from this lawsuit?
    Thank you

    ADMIN – Hi Steve,

    It sure looks that way. CA is not included.

  11. Mary says:

    Is Nuvigil included in the class action settlement?

    ADMIN – Hi Mary,

    No

  12. Kevin Stockley says:

    I bought Provigil in February right around the 15th

  13. Kathy A vanderheyden says:

    I purchased provigil

  14. Bernadine says:

    Regarding claims in California:
    “#3. If a consumer filled a prescription for Provigil® in California or Louisiana and paid $1,000, that consumer’s check would be calculated as follows: $1,000 x 5.36% = $53.60. The entire amount would come from the Class Consumer Fund. California and Louisiana consumers are eligible to receive money only from the Class Consumer Fund because those states are not participating in the States’ settlement. ”

    I’m going to file and see what happens.

  15. Steve M says:

    We purchased this at a ridiculous price in 2014. This settlement says it is for 2006 through 2012. Why? And why does it state those of us who purchased it through 2016 are affected?

    ADMIN – Hi Steve,

    This settlement has to do with the delays of generic drugs. I believe generic modafinil became available in 2014

    • Steve M says:

      But I do not understand why purchases made through 2016 are affected. I paid an outrageous price for the generic because of this company’s underhanded dealings. If financial consideration for that is not part of this settlement then the purchase should not be included either. My purchase should be excluded and available for inclusion in a separate lawsuit.

  16. Stephanie Blunt says:

    I have started used Provigil in 10-23-2008 , 01-22-2009 , 02-22-2009, 05-26-2009, 07-24-2009 and there are more dates but theses are some that I remember I have also used them up to date.

  17. Stephanie Blunt says:

    I also used it in 2010 ,2011, 2012

  18. Matt says:

    Yep, they raised the price on Provigil to over $1,200 per month and United Healthcare stopped covering it.
    It’s a great drug for night shift disorder, but a rip off.

  19. Kathy Yarbrough says:

    I have been on provil and later the generic modafinil since 2006 but I had insurance most of this time so I didn’t have to pay the ridiculous price of 1800.00 a month , I only paid 4.00 because of my insurance so am I still eligible to file a claim? And I’ve been on it since 2006 every month since so I was unsure if I could because in my letter it states if you purchased provil through July 28th, 2016 you’re rights will be affected so I don’t know if I need to submit a claim form or not.

    ADMIN – Hi Kathy,

    You can certainly claim but your check is likely to be very little as it will be based on your $4 copay

  20. Sandy says:

    I was prescribed Provigil for a period of time between 2007 and 2010. CVS cannot retrieve those old records. I also did not save old receipts etc. and have moved twice since then. What can I do? The only proof that “I have taken Provigil” is that the class action info and claim form was mailed to me at my new address.

    ADMIN – Hi Sandy,

    I encourage you to contact the admin to ask about next steps.

    • Shannon Anderson says:

      I am the exact same way Sandy! I’ve moved twice, they don’t have records that far back and I’ve even been divorced since then! Why would they put this on us? They know we’ve obviously purchased the medicine and how much they were charging at the time! They should just take the total amount and split it up among all of us or something. To provide records 10 years old, no one has those! Even HR doesn’t hold records for that long :/ so we automatically just loose out? That’s not right when we are potentially talking thousands of dollars for some of us! That medicine was crazy expensive and when some of us were taking it, back in 2006, 2007, 2008, etc I can’t produce those records/receipts etc. so what’s the next steps?

      ADMIN – Hi Shannon,

      We are not putting anything on you. If you object with the settlement you can submit an objection as directed in the long notice.

      • Sandy says:

        Shannon, Good to know that so many of us are having the same issue.
        Don’t give up and follow up with whatever direction you are given. It may be worth it. Good Luck.

    • Sandy says:

      Thank you for your quick response.

    • Marilyn says:

      Sandy, call 1-800-shopcvs. You will be asked to write a letter, and instructed what the letter must include. They also provide the mailing address.

    • Angie Scott says:

      CVS can retrieve your old prescription records. You need to call the main offices. They cannot give you the information immediately because it has to be mailed, so you better act quickly.

    • Lorre says:

      CVS and BLue cross blue shield told me they require a request from an attorney to retrieve records during that time. I have no idea how anyone will be able to retrace the dates and cost of using this drug.

      • Susan says:

        They are YOUR records. Tell them all u need to do is sign a release of info, at most. The root of the problem I suspect is the they only keep records so long. Seems the lawsuit should just ask what dose u were on when & they can come up with approximate dollar amounts. Sheesh. They aren’t making this easy.

  21. Randy says:

    I received claim form, took Provigil the entire time: 6/24/06 – 3/31/12 but have no records to prove it. My insurance covered the drug, but co-pays were steep — maybe $1000 total? How am I supposed to find “documentation” of co-pays I made 10 years ago?

    ADMIN – Hi Randy,

    Try reaching out to your pharmacy.

    • Judith Latham says:

      I just got my letter and think I will have some verification problems. No one has mentioned your tax records on your personal computer. You may have medical deduction worksheets, the receipts from the pharmacy, and don’t forget your doctor’s prescription records. I don’t know how long those records are kept, but it is a long time. The records themselves wouldn’t wouldn’t prove you purchased the drug, but I think the records could buy you time to do more searching since you don’t have to send your proof with this form.

      • Susan says:

        Yup, u thought of the taxes too. I’ve never had a pharmacy deny me a printout of my meds, but I’ve been on this from at least 2000 to present (well, I take 1/4 my dose now). Imho, I also think the insurance companies should be held accountable. Fortunately, I tend to save receipts but my file drawer with many of them is jammed. My PCs from then are dinosaurs & useless.

  22. Tee says:

    I am so frustrated, it’s way too late for me to access ANY records from the pharmacy from 2008-2009 when I took it!

  23. suzanne shellman says:

    I have been taking Provigil since 2003 and required to pay full price for name brand , I live in the state of California and would like to confirm that California was not included in this settlement?

    ADMIN – Hi Suzanne,

    California is not included in this settlement

  24. Shelle Miles says:

    My first comment is similar to the claimant/person above. I was prescribed and purchased Provigil from 2007 – 2012, lived in 2 different states and just received notification of this law suit yesterday (March 28th, 2017) via the U.S mail. I personally know if I attempt to contact my old pharmacies in other states, if they are able (at all to find my old Rx records which I purchased Provigil), it would take at least 90 days. The claim form has to be received no later than April 13th, 2017. There is no guarantee that my previous pharmacies, would still have on file, my old prescription records which need to include the amount I personally paid for each.

    So can I leave the dollar amount listed BLANK on the Provigil Class Action Law Suit Form ?
    Or should I write in “Exact Amount Known by Medicare – Part D – Prescription Drug Plan” ?

    FYI….for the exact dates which I purchased the medications,
    I wrote in “Purchased between 06/24/2006 – 03/31/2012 and then wrote my Initials next to it.
    Hope this will be legally acceptable.

    In addition, I have another very IMPORTANT QUESTION:
    by signing the Release Paragraph on the Provigil Class Action Settlement Form,
    are we Waiving Our Rights to Potentially Participate in Any Future Class Action or Other Legal Law Suits For Those of Us (Like Myself) who also were prescribed and purchased Nuvigil, during the same time period (June 24, 2006 – March 31st, 2012) ?

    Hope someone will answer all of my questions, not just some of them.

    ADMIN – Hi Shelle,

    Call this number 1-877-236-1413

    • Tony Harris says:

      I want to see your answer to these questions instead of just keeping it private. These are important and I want to know.
      Because insurance paid the larger portion of the total cost – it still hurts society as a whole, as all of our insurance premiums went up the next year!

      ADMIN – Hi Tony,

      At Class Action Rebates we specialize in providing general class action info. We don’t have answers specific to each individual filing a claim.

    • Susan says:

      They don’t answer that number or emails & btw, how r we supposed to afford private lawyers when some of us have gone into debt over provigil or been able to get nothing done going without ? Ok, u only answer questions abt class action suits. 1. I thought a “class action suit” means the more plaintffs are a group of people all represented by the same Attys for the same problem? Also will you PLEASE answer abt whether anything at all needed to be filed by 4/13/17 still & what al the ppl do who couldn’t respond with an actual dollar amount? If u cannot help, pls tell me what agency defends our rights and pls do not tell me to hire my own Atty or call the number. I’ve been asking here for two days and up all night doing taxes and this. And btw, I also have a rare fatal illness and this is what I get for being a model USA citizen. FYI, I’m not stupid. I have a doctorate. What a waste my life has become. Please help us!

      ADMIN – Hi Susan,

      As a matter of consideration to your multiple health issues I will ignore your lack of kindness. Please remember that our website is a project that we do out of love. We don’t presently profit from it.

      1.There was an extension to the deadline meaning you don’t have to submit a thing by the original deadline.

      2. The class action attorney represent you for collective issues not for individual concerns. Class counsel has done their job in securing a settlement in your behalf, it is not the job of the admin to ensure the claims process goes through.

      3. Among the agencies that defend your rights as a consumer you may want to consider the FTC.

      Congratulations on holding a doctoral degree.

  25. Robert says:

    My wife was prescribed NuVigil during that time. The co-pays kept going up so she finally had to do without it. Are those rats going to pay us for the pain and suffering she endured by not having access to the drug she needed because they kept the price artificially high? Are they goint to be punished for producing a generic version that they sold at the same price as the brand name version because they were the only manufacturer?
    If we are lucky, we might get a couple hundred dollars. The lawyers will make millions, and they didn’t suffer at all. This is what we call justice.

    ADMIN – Hi Robert,

    Without the help of these lawyers you would not get a single penny.

  26. Suzzette Wagner Gornbein says:

    I lived in Michigan when taking provigil but I am now a resident of California. Am I eligible in the class action lawsuit

    ADMIN – Hi Suzette,

    The terms read: “All persons residing” if it read “All persons who purchased” I would probably guess that you qualify. To make sure contact the admin.

  27. Kimberly M. Kosch says:

    I’m still waiting for Walgreens and KMart to get back with me concerning Provigil, should I wait to send in my form or go ahead and send it in. Also, I was on Nuvigil should I include those copays in my paper work.

    ADMIN – Hi Kimberly,

    I highly recommend you contact the class action administrator with your question.

  28. Sally Stamos says:

    Are the dates required for each refill of Provigil that was purchased between June 24, 2006 and March 31, 2012?
    If an individual was prescribed Provigil for narcolepsy that is a long list of dates.

    ADMIN – Hi Sally,

    It looks like the form asks when you started taking the medication and when you ended.

  29. hilary says:

    I paid WAY more money after March 2012. Thousands more! It was the “generic” modafanil that I paid almost $5000 for out of pocket while my insurance paid just under $8000. I didn’t even fill it every month, I usually went without.

    If I join this class for purchasing between 6/24/06 – 3/3/12 does it exclude me from a future settlement for purchasing between 4/1/12 – 7/28/2016 when the generic form was still monopolized??

    the section “what are my other rights?” at the bottom of the first pg states,

    “If you purchased Provigil and/or modafinil through July 28, 2016, and you do nothing, your rights will be affected. If you do not want to be legally bound by the settlement, you must exclude yourself. If you do not exclude yourself, you will not be able to sue the defendants for any claim relating to the lawsuit.”

    It is confusing. Does this mean joining the class will automatically exclude me from this other pending litigation? it sound like I may get very little, so I don’t want to opt out of a future settlement that is for the time I paid quite a bit more.

    ADMIN – Hi Hilary,

    It is best that you consult with your lawyer if you need clarification.

    • Susan says:

      same for me! I’m still gathering up all my info from the entire period covered! Do u know if the deadline for sure was extended to June? The claim form has not been updated & I can’t get thru to a live person or reply from the class action website. There was no way u could meet the 4/13 deadline. Do u know if we had to submit anything at all by yesterday. I am very sick & all my $$ is going into medical treatment despite two health insurance plans. Provigil/modafil is not covered at all by my insurance now (despite my docs’ best efforts) & im rationing my dose & it’s made my quality of life much worse now. Thus, retaining an Atty is too costly even tho I’m over the poverty line. I won’t be if my meds continue to cost so much. Very discouraged & idk abt others but the April deadline even for healthier ppl was at a time most are finishing taxes & most of us have quite a few itemized deductions that make taxes take longer. Fortunately, I have a thing abt saving receipts & have gathered much of my medication receipts. I really need to know if nothing was due yesterday so I can stop stressing & take care of myself & taxes. Pls pls reply. Thank you so much! Ps sorry for typos. I have low vision & typing all this is hard. I hope u respond. Maybe we all need our own group Atty! Idk much abt that.. not my field. Thx. Sorry to struggle to ramble.. I do that when stressed!

  30. Sue says:

    I received 8 letters last week–about the lawsuit–all the same.. I presume that they get the info. that I took provigil from the pharmacy.
    1. It looks like I only need to return one completed form to be included in the class action claim. Is this correct?
    2. Two or three times, I bought some through a Canadian mail-order pharmacy ( US doctor faxed the pharmacy a prescription). It was a generic version. Can the amount that I paid the Canadian pharmacy be added to the amount that I paid to the US pharmacy as a baisis for the total amount as part of the lawsuit?

    ADMIN – Hi Sue,

    I believe it is only one form.
    I don’t think Canada is included.

  31. Marilyn says:

    I did not receive a letter about this Provigil class action lawsuit, but instead heard about it from a friend. I plan to submit the Provigil Claim Form as soon as the CVS administration responds to my letter requesting Provigil documentation. Is there another step I should be taking, or reason for not receiving a letter?

    ADMIN – HI Marilyn,

    You just need to file as instructed on the online notice.

  32. Lonnita Franco says:

    Would you please clarify the meaning of the statement “if you purchased Provigil through July 28th, 2016 you’re rights will be affected.”

    I have records for purchasing Privigil from 2007 through 3/31/2012. I plant to submit a claim, I just don’t understand the above statement.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    ADMIN – Hi Lonnita,

    Basically what that means is that if you file and get paid you release your rights to a lawsuit in the future. If you do nothing you release your rights to a lawsuit in the future. If you want to take the company to court on your own you must exsorcise your right to object

  33. Noreen Channels says:

    I just filed my claim online. At the end, the notice said “Your claim number is.” — without a number being inserted!
    Can you email this claim number to me, please?
    Thanks!

    ADMIN – Hi Noreen,

    I am not the claim admin. Please contact them directly using the info we provide under contact.

  34. Marilyn says:

    I sent a certified letter to CVS administration on3 -28-2017. I still have not received a written response from CVS, and they refused my request for verbal receipt information. Then on 4-10-2017 I called the contact phone number listed here, but could only leave a message with my name, phone number, and reason for call.:
    State AG Provigil Settlement, c/o A.B. Data, Ltd.,
    P.O. Box 173026, Milwaukee, WI 53217,
    1-877-236-1413.-877-236-1413.
    Today, 4-11-2017, I left a second message to call, as I could not get a real person to talk to me. The only other option I have is to try and get information from BCBS, at which point my phone will ring busy. How should I proceed?

    ADMIN – Hi Marilyn,
    Consider contacting class counsel. Their info is on the long notice.

  35. Bryan K says:

    I just learned that the claim deadline has been extended by the judge until June 25 th? To verify, use Google to search for Provigil lawsuit extension. A copy of the judge’s order is also on the official website in the court documents section.

    • Susan says:

      Hi, Brian- yes, I heard this too,& saw the judge’s order, but the class action website hasn’t updated the form. I tried callinf but couldn’t get to a live person. One of the automated options did say the new deadline. I don’t know if it applies in every state. Do you? I searched google & didn’t find much &emailed the Atty general but no reply. Do you know if we must submit anything today & if so, what and what exact time & zone. I was told a few days ago by the lawsuit office to just estimate a$$ amount. I feel uncomfortable abt that but have been on it the entire time! If we submit an online claim tonight, can we revise it? Thx. Hope u or someone who knows for sure can answer my questions ASAP!

  36. Lorre says:

    I have contacted my pharmacy, who recommended I contact my insurance company. They will not reveal any information to me without a request from a lawyer. I contacted my doctor to get an dea of prescribed dates and I have to file a formal request to research my files which could be months. I’m not sure what else to do but to guess at dates and money spent.

  37. Kelly says:

    Greetings, I filed a claim online this evening, but did not receive a confirmation number or email. Was the claim form received?
    For reference, I did complete the information online and saw green check marks for each category.
    In the meantime, to confirm, I’ve been paying apx $20 a pill for years for this medication. The medication has had a positive affect on my life, and has been necessary for daily function, but over the years the increasing high cost has been a challenge.
    Like others, i struggled with the price, but was told to be patient, the generic would soon be available and the cost would go down.
    If I’m not mistaken there was some kind of prolonged court fight, and the company bought the other company that wanted to make the generic Provigil? Or something like that, I don’t remember precisely.
    What a shock after years of waiting and delay after delay of the release date for the generic medication, that when the generic was finally released ….it cost more than the Brand Provigil and my out-of-pocket jumped to apx $800 for 30 pills!
    Of course by then the company simultaneously released a new… slightly less expensive version of what appears to be basically the same medication called Nuvigil. Nuvigil was curiously priced at apx $20 a pill… basically the same price I had paid that previous month for its sister medicine Provigil before the price jump to over $800!
    My out of pocket costs for Providgil, Nuvigil and generic Armodofinyl, over the stated time period, totals approximately $24,000.
    I need to pull all the pharmacy records for those last 7 years, but I think the medication out of pocket costs ran between $3,600-$5,000 a year.
    For many years the medication wasn’t covered by insurance, and only recently has the cost been partially covered.
    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    ADMIN – Hi Kelly,

    I believe you are asking if the admin received your claim. I can’t answer that. You need to contact the admin directly using the information we conveniently provide under the subheading “contact”

    • Jill says:

      Kelly, I am in the same boat. Curiously though, Nuvigil gave me a bad reaction and I could only take the Brand name. Such a strange situation, I had to stop completely as I am on a very limited income. So sad too, as Provigil was the only thing that worked properly for my situation. Now I take 3 different meds to get the a similar result.
      I am unable to get al of my records from the pharmacy but am still going to give this a shot. It appears as though there are many of us.

  38. Colleen McDonough says:

    I received a notice (addressed to me personally) of the settlement action for Provigil. I purchased the medication once with a prescription. I want to know how my prescription record was made available to have been included in this notice of the right to make a claim. A response asap would be most appreciated.

    ADMIN – Hi Coleen,

    I can’t answer your question. You must reach out to the admin

  39. Susan says:

    PROVIGIL FRIENDS- Can anyone please please clarify if the extended deadline of June means we didn’t have to file anything at all by April 13? The online claim form still liists the deadline as 4/13. Please reply!!!! Thank you so very much.

  40. Susan says:

    Maybe We should start a Facebook group about this to have a centralized place to share info. I’m not getting the info I need.

    I am curious if the moderator has heard any news regarding a similar lawsuit with the prescription Buprenorphorine aka subutex…I know attorney generals in all 50 states have filed a complaint or investigation against Roxanne, teva, hi tek, etc…I know this is a dif drug and am just reaching out. I currently spend 300 a month out of pocket and that is cheap compared to the year I spent $800. With insurance I was paying 270 at CVS. Anyway just curious if u know of anything pending or can inform me of some resources to use for info

    ADMIN – Hi Rachel,

    I have not heard of any pending class actions. Please remember that a high price for a particular drug does not necessarily mean that the drug manufacturer is doing something wrong.

    I’ve been using Provigil since 2005. My choices were, try Provigil or go on disability. I chose Provigil. I’m now retired, on Medicare and pay $800/month for supplemental insurance in order to keep the drug plan. Some pharmacies won’t be bothered to even stock it. The pharm I use now charges me $120/mo co pay but only gives me a 15 day supply at a time. Admittedly I cannot function without it but why “do they” make it so difficult and so expensive to get it? Upstanding citizens pay the price to feel well to be productive, yet the government spends millions on Narcon to help the drug addicted, nonworking opioid user! Now that’s a real dichotomy I’ll never understand.

    Not done so but agree with most all of you and that it is practically impossible to gain access to how much we paid at pharmacies excetera after so many years however after reading for there when you click on the detailed information above where it says if you want to download this it will list the claimants lawyers and perhaps that might be where we need to go I know one number in Columbus is 614-466-4328 it is the council the plan Estates at 150 East Gay Street 2nd 2nd floor if you want additional information I suggest you look above and read the entire docket I also believe that this does not include any lawsuits that might incur due to them breaking laws on monopolisation mop Monopoly station between individual provigil and its generic switch are all manufactured by the same drug company I’ve had problems with this for many years could only take it in and out off and on due to the prices and how overwhelming it was in fact provigil became more expensive when they made the Nuvigil version which is just taking out one ingredient I remember talking to my Pharmacy way back when and they just told me they had seven years and I keep renewing the things which is what does anti loss dude is about but I think it’s separate when it comes to the monopolization this is just a payout for what we paid but I could be wrong I’m no lawyer far from it and actually I’ve been taking provigil /and or Nuvigil since I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998

    Im not sure what state the one of you that are having a problem getting records from CVS, i live in GA and i called home office, took a pic of my signature, emailed it to them and got my pharmacy records all the way back to 2006. I, of couse had to go through them and add up the provigil costs but i atleast got a close estimate of how much ive paid for this drug thru the years. Ive been on it since 2004 and have spent quite a bit. I noticed on one response that we will only be getting 5.26% of each $1000? But im not complaining!!! A little is better than nothing!!! Especially when i live on SSDI and SSI that the govt so kindly acts like its coming out of their personal accounts.

  47. Renee says:

    Can anyone tell me if we will be getting back what we paid in or just a percentage of it? After reading back thru that was about what to do in California.

  48. Debra Maroney says:

    I purchased this drug in California (although I now live in Ohio)–please provide a link to claim form for those who purchased in California. As I understand it, those who purchased in California are covered under the Consumer Fund, rather than state. I have searched for the Consumer Fund claim form, but cannot find it.
    Please help.

    ADMIN – Hi Debra,

    That page has never come across my desk. When it does I will post it.

    I got the letter today and I really don’t understand. I see commercials all the time about lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies because people suffered from side effects that are listed in the prescription sheet. I don’t understand how people can hold a pharmaceutical company responsible for side effects that were listed as possible. Am I not responsible for informing myself and for the decisions I make, I guess not… then lawyers take half. It’s one reason that medicine costs so much… BUT, in this suit that does not seem to be the case and I can’t figure out what the suit is about (other than money). Could someone fill me in? What is this about? If the price was too high why did you buy it?

    ADMIN – Hi Julien,

    This is an antitrust case in which the defendant apparently found ways to delay the release of more affordable generic options which was against laws designed to protect consumers.

  50. Matt says:

    I believe my late wife’s had been on this. I don’t have receipts , how do I go about filling out the forms or am I not covered under the suit as a surviving spouse?

    ADMIN – Hi Matt,

    Please reach out to the admin to see if you can claim on behalf of your wife’s estate.

  51. kathy says:

    I have been taking Provigil now take the generic for 16 years my insurance pays well. I only pay $5.00 so there is no need for me to be part of this lawsuit.

  52. betty godfrey says:

    I took Provigil and got a letter to fill and return . HOW TO GET PROFF INFO WHEN MY INSURANCE HAS CHANGED WITH DIFFERANT PYMACYS. Not sure wich it was at this time or how much I payed and dates?? and don’t remember what drug store as it has changed a few times too. thanks.

    ADMIN – Hi Betty,

    Do you best and go to the pharmacies that you do recall.

  53. RO Roberts says:

    Just want to be positive on this. I submitted claim online in Feb. Today I received a blank claim form via USPS. Do I need to also complete and mail in the paper copy? Thank you so much.

    ADMIN – Hi RO,

    Is it a full form or a request for additional information?

    • RO Roberts says:

      It’s a full blank form with no letter or anything requesting additional information. Thank you.

      ADMIN – Hi RO,

      Fill out the form and send it using certified or registered mail.

  54. betty godfrey says:

    If I send paper back I filled out with out proof of purchases and so on. Will it be ok until if they ask for more proof ? As this will give me more time to get all of this together since it has been so long ago. If I can get all proof they ask for if they ask me to send more. ? ?? Also how will the money to me get to me ?? Check in mail ? or direct deposit?? Also how long will it be until I get it ? Thank you.

    ADMIN – Hi Betty,

    Provide as much info as possible when initially filing. When you are ready to add more info use your claim number as reference and send the new info via email or snail mail. The monies will be paid when the settlement is fully resolved. Most settlements are paid via check.

    • betty godfrey says:

      Thank you for info. Where is my claim number located on form ? If it is??

      ADMIN – Hi Betty,

      You receive your claim number after submitting the online form.

      • betty godfrey says:

        I wont be doing a on line form. I got paper form in mail to send back with info. So is this ok?? Also do I still have to do something online??? Like claim number ?? thank you.

        ADMIN – Hi Betty,

        If you are planning to submit via regular mail I guess they will send you a confirmation in the mail. I would send it certified just in case.

    I filled my Provigil prescription at Eckerd’s pharmacy, which is now no longer existing. Does anyone know if the DEA or government agency who keeps records from 2006?
