In the wake of last summer’s Stryker hip recall, the medical device manufacturer has launched a Stryker Broadspire claims program to handle the mounting number of claims filed by patients who received its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems.
Stryker Broadspire Claims Process
Via its website, Stryker Orthopaedics recently announced its partnership with third-party claims administrator, Broadspire Services, Inc., which was contracted to work directly with patients in managing reimbursement requests related to expenses associated with the Stryker hip recall. These medical costs may be related to treatment, testing and revision surgeries incurred by patients who received the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants before July 2012.
However, if you were planning to pursue a Broadspire Stryker claim, it may be wise to talk with an attorney first. Two years ago, Broadspire Services Inc. was contracted for similar purposes by DePuy Orthopaedics after the manufacturer recalled its DePuy ASR hip replacement. Right now, lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP are representing hundreds of patients affected by the DePuy ASR hip recall, and can provide you with valuable information related to the Broadspire Stryker claims process.
What Costs Are Covered Under the Stryker Broadspire Claims Program?
The exact costs covered by the Stryker Broadspire Claims Program are unclear. On the “Claims & Reimbursement FAQs” page of Stryker’s website, the manufacturer only states it “will be reimbursing patients for testing, treatment, revision surgery; if necessary; and other costs relating to this voluntary recall.”
