After its initial $1 billion dollar settlement offer in 2014, Stryker Corporation and Howmedica Osteonics Corp. reached a new agreement to compensate additional hip implant patients, according to a press release.

In December 2016, Stryker announced it will “compensate additional eligible U.S. patients who had surgery to replace their Rejuvenate Modular Neck Hip Stem and ABG II Modular Neck Hip Stem, known as a revision surgery, prior to December 19, 2016.” Enrollment for the new program began Jan. 17 and ends March 1, 2017.

Stryker requires 95 percent of eligible patients involved in lawsuits to enroll in the 2016 Settlement Program in order to begin paying out benefits.
