The number of claims submitted by Vendside is as follows:

Total deceased claims registered COPD VWF Total
2003 59 113 172
2004 46 0 46
Total 105 113 218


1.Claims registered reflects the total of deceased claims registered, i.e. does not include claims that were registered live but have died since.

2.Claim receipts are those claims that are fully registered, i.e.exclude pool of claims accepted with minimum data, awaiting further information to permit cross-referencing and duplicate checks prior to full registration.
