REVISED PROCEDURE FOR PATIENTS WHO MAY BE SEEKING A REFUND FOR UNUSED VIOXX ® "rofecoxib"
If you are a patient who took VIOXX, you may be eligible to receive a refund for the amount you paid out-of-pocket for VIOXX that remained unused as of September 30, 2004. As recently as April 11th, 2006 a New Jersey jury found Merck liable Tuesday of misrepresenting Vioxx to federal regulators, and ordered the drugmaker to pay $9 million in punitive damages to a man who suffered a heart attack after taking the painkiller." Read about the Vioxx Suit, and compensatory damages, as well as awarded damages here. That's $9,000,000 to one person in damages! Contact us today to find out how you too can get your settlement!
Merck strongly recommends that you return any unused VIOXX to the National Notification Center (NNC) in accordance with the instructions below.
However, if you have already destroyed or disposed of your unused VIOXX, or cannot return it in its original container, you may still be eligible to receive a refund under new procedures adopted by Merck.
To receive a refund for the amount you paid out-of-pocket for VIOXX that remained unused as of September 30, 2004, please call the National Notification Center (NNC) at 1-800-805-9542. Patients who call that number will receive a Patient Return Kit directly from NNC which may be returned via UPS (United Parcel Service). The return kit includes a shipping container and a prepaid UPS shipping label, with complete instructions. Completed return kits can be placed into a UPS drop or delivered to a UPS drop-off location, or the patient can arrange for pick-up by calling UPS at 1-800-PICK-UPS. Refunds may take up to 12 weeks from the time that NNC receives the completed refund request.
If you have already destroyed or disposed of your unused VIOXX, you may still be eligible to receive a refund. You must call NNC to obtain a new Patient Return Kit, which contains complete instructions, as the requirements for refund under these circumstances have changed.
Patients who cannot return their unused VIOXX are required to sign and submit certain forms contained in the Patient Return Kit. In addition, for such patients the following restrictions apply (these restrictions apply only to patients who cannot return their unused VIOXX):
You must submit a valid pharmacy receipt indicating that the prescription was dispensed:
* On or after August 1, 2004, for a 30-day supply of 12.5-mg or 25-mg VIOXX
* On or after June 1, 2004, for any amount greater than a 30-day supply of 12.5-mg or 25-mg VIOXX
* On or after June 1, 2004, for any amount of 50-mg VIOXX
All patients seeking a refund for unused VIOXX must phone their request for a Patient Return Kit to NNC (1-800-805-9542) by March 31, 2005, and the Patient Return Kit with required documents must be complete and postmarked or received by UPS no later than May 16, 2005, in order to be eligible for a refund. Refund requests postmarked or received by UPS after May 16, 2005, will not be eligible for a refund.
If you have previously submitted a refund request through NNC and did not include the unused portion of VIOXX in its original container, NNC will contact you to obtain any additional information needed to process your return.
