Incurred But Not Reported Indemnity Scheme


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
