What is the Medical Monitoring Program?

For decades, Dupont released the chemical C-8 into the air and water in the Greater Mid-Ohio Valley. As part of a 2005 legal settlement agreement, a Science Panel conducted studies to see if C-8 exposure was linked to increased risk for several diseases. The panel found six linked human diseases:

  1. Pregnancy-induced hypertension (including preeclampsia)
  2. Kidney cancer
  3. Testicular cancer
  4. Thyroid disease
  5. Ulcerative colitis
  6. Diagnosed high cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia)

The Medical Monitoring Program offers free, ongoing medical screening for these six diseases to most people who live in the Greater Mid-Ohio Valley.

A large settlement fund was created to ensure everyone who needs medical monitoring can obtain it at no-cost – all you have to do is sign up. The settlement fund and the Medical Monitoring Program are administered by Feinberg Rozen, LLP, a NYC-based law firm.

What are the exact eligibility requirements for Medical Monitoring?

You are eligible to receive Medical Monitoring if these four conditions are met:

  1. You did not previously opt-out of the class-action settlement.
  2. You are a member of the class outlined in the settlement. This means you drank water for at least one year before December 4, 2004 from any of the following public water districts or private water supplies:
    • Lubeck Public Service District
    • City of Belpre
    • Tuppers Plain, Chester Water District
    • Village of Pomeroy
    • Little Hocking Water Association
    • Mason County Public Service District

    You are also included if you drank water for at least a year before December 4, 2005 from a private well included on this list.

  3. You do not have a prior medical diagnosis for any of the six diseases linked to C-8 exposure. These diseases are:
    • Pregnancy-induced hypertension (including preeclampsia)
    • Kidney cancer
    • Testicular cancer
    • Thyroid disease
    • Ulcerative colitis
    • Diagnosed high cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia)

    Please note: If you had a prior diagnosis for one or more of these diseases, you can still obtain medical monitoring for any other of the six diseases for which you did not receive a prior diagnosis.

  4. The monitoring test is something that a physician would not otherwise recommend for you if you had not been exposed to C-8.
