To be eligible to claim under IBNR you must be a participating MDO.
An MDO is part of the IBNR Indemnity Scheme if they were in existence on 30 June 2002 unless the Minister determines otherwise.
Only 1 MDO is currently determined as being able to participate in IBNR.
The IBNR covers an incident if the incident:
- leading to the claim occurred on or before 30 June 2002
- occurred in the course of, or in connection with, the practice of a medical profession by a person.
Before 1 July 2002 the MDO must not be notified of:
- the occurrence of the incident
- any claim against or by the person in relation to the incident.
