CODE 11   Not yet commenced, claim file closed

'Not yet commenced, claim file closed' indicates that a reserve has been set for the medical indemnity claim but none of the events signalling claim commencement have occurred, so the claim has been finalised as a discontinued potential claim.

CODE 20   Commenced, claim file open

'Commenced, claim file open' indicates that the medical indemnity claim has commenced and remains open.

'Commenced, claim file closed' indicates that the medical indemnity claim has commenced and has been closed.

'Claim record rescinded, not a medical indemnity claim' indicates when the health authority determines that a record previously transmitted to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (the National Data Custodian) is not a medical indemnity claim but is another type of claim, a duplicate record with a different claim identifier, or the record of a health-care incident construed as a potential claim but on insufficient justification.
