In re Diet Drugs

CIVIL ACTION NO. 99-20593, MDL NO. 1203 In the United State District Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania

Heffler Claims Group serves as the fund administrator of the Diet Drugs Products Liability Litigation, and is responsible for the administration of claims for payment in the $1.275 billion, 7th Amendment Supplemental Class Settlement Fund. The claims administration process required the firm to procure claim forms and a medical review by a participating physician of a relevant echocardiogram, for the approximate 40,000 Category One class members who have been identified by the AHP Settlement Trust. The Firm’s Technology Services Group developed both an electronic and paper Proof of Claim form giving Class Members a choice of the type of claim form to file. The Technology Services Group also designed an interactive website for Class Members to file Proofs of Claim and receive current status reports on their claims. In addition, the custom software was designed to read and collect measurements made by a participating physician from a Class Member’s echocardiogram. Correspondence with either Class Members or their counsel regarding the results of Medical Reviews was handled by the Heffler Claims Group.
