(3) This table reflects the average cost of medical negligence claims during the past 10 financial years based on the compensation payments identified at question 1. This amount can be grossly overestimated where high cost claims have been paid out in a given year.

(4) Costs for external legal, medical or administrative services are borne by ACTIA for all insured claims and are all inclusive within the premium. For the minority of claims outside our insurance policy terms, the annual cost to ACT Health, based on an average of the last four financial years, for all medical negligence claims is $6,365.80.
