Just had this issue and the answer was, at least in my case, a most definite no. I took my laptop to the apple store and they said no. I called apple and they said no. I couldn't believe that this company known for its supposed great service sold a defective product and won't fix it but that seems to be the case.
I tried last week. The best I could get was a discount on the repair, but the damage to my logic board by the GPU caused it to no longer boot. The program ended in December last year, but it has been extended in the past.
If you have no other damage you might be able to get a flat rate tier 1 repair if you are in the USA.
