Missing first claims? [Release 1 data]

If DSFC is the time since that customer's first claim, then I would expect evey MemberID in the Claims file to have a "0- 1 month" entry.  And 77,118 of them do, but there are 171 members with (much) later first claims. 

Question: Are these errors, or patients with a scrubbed earlier claim?

OT: What happened to preview on this forum?

OT2: My 'edit' button is presumably hiding under the Twitter box?

OT3: If you are going to run this competition for 2+ years, then you *really* need a way of organising and searching the forums.

You're right on both accounts. My plan is fix up the forums over the next few weeks once the competition kicks off with submissions. I plan to have things like better forum organization (i.e. subforums), search capability, and fix the remaining display issues. 

Sorry about the delay, there's just a few more issues ahead of it in the queue to work on first.

Hi Allan,

That's because some members have had claims suppressed. In release 2 (coming soon!), we'll make it clear which members this applies to.
