- From the Status dropdown list, select the status that accurately describes the claim, based on the descriptions in Table 1.
- If you want to set the type of the claim manually, select the Set the type of this claim manually. checkbox. When you select the checkbox, a warning message appears below, stating: Warning: The claim type will no longer be set automatically on this claim. Choose the type of claim from the options provided.
- When you’re finished, select Done.
The advanced setting claims-header-type can toggle whether the policy type or claim type is displayed in the claim’s header beneath Status.
To change a claim’s status to Open, you must set the Loss Date of a claim. If you don’t set the Loss Date, an Error message will display and prompt you to set a valid Loss Date. When you change a claim’s status to an inactive status, such as Pending or Closed, you don’t need to set a valid Loss Date.
