California Attorney General Settlement Proof of Claim


Section A: Claimant Identification

Please provide us with the following information related to the individual who PAID for Provigil, Nuvigil, and/or generic versions of Provigil (modafinil) dispensed pursuant to a prescription for one or more of these drugs. This person is referred to as the “Claimant.” If the person who PAID for the Provigil, Nuvigil, and/or generic versions of Provigil is different than the person who was prescribed the drugs, then the Claimant is still the person who PAID for the drugs. So, for example, if a parent purchased Provigil for their child, then the parent is the Claimant.


* By providing your e-mail address, you authorize the Settlement Administrator to use it in providing you with information relevant to this claim.


Section B: Eligible Claimants

You should file this Proof of Claim Form if, during the period from June 24, 2006 through December 31, 2012, you resided in California and purchased and/or paid for Provigil, Nuvigil, and/or generic versions of Provigil (modafinil) dispensed pursuant to a prescription for personal consumption by you or for another under your caregiving in any state in the United States or the District of Columbia. Your purchases of these drugs are eligible regardless of the out-of pocket-costs you paid, even if you were partially or fully reimbursed by insurance. Employees of the defendants in Vista Healthplan v. Cephalon and State of California v. Cephalon are not eligible to submit a claim. The judge and his immediate family are not eligible to submit a claim.



Section C: Purchase Information

Below, please write down the total number of prescriptions pursuant to which you purchased and/or paid for Provigil, Nuvigil, and/or generic versions of Provigil (modafinil) during the period from June 24, 2006 to December 31, 2012 in any state in the United States or the District of Columbia. You must have been a California resident at the time you purchased and/or paid for Provigil, Nuvigil, and/or modafinil.

A Claimant “paid” for Provigil, Nuvigil, or generic versions of Provigil (modafinil) if, for example, the Claimant had insurance and paid a co-payment or a co-insurance payment (that is, the Claimant's unreimbursed out-of-pocket cost) and insurance covered the rest. Also, an insured Claimant may have “paid” for the drug if she paid for the entire cost of the drug because the Claimant had not met a deductible. A Claimant not covered by insurance who purchased the drug would also be considered to have “paid” for the drug.
