Scope of coverage

The existing Claim resource is constricted to use cases where Claims are sent to insurances for reimbursement, in a message-like style. It neither references ChargeItems nor Accounts

It doesn't not cover use cases where existing ChargeItems in an Account are used to create an Invoice to be sent out to Individuals or Organizations in a document-style.

Unlike the Claim resource it reflect the perspective of the (healthcare) service providing organization.

An invoice is a financial document issued by a Healthcare provider to a patient or a payer indicating the goods and services (ChargeItems) performed with their quantities and prices. The invoice is the hospital’s view, whereas the Claim is the payer’s view on the performed services.
