Provider asks for declaration of immediate disability for cancer patients

Maria Lúcia Amaral suggests that in the case of cancer patients, this immediate declaration of incapacity of 60% is valid for five years or until the medical board is held, if it occurs earlier.

The Ombudsman recommends to the Government that the declaration of incapacity of 60% for cancer patients be immediate upon diagnosis and that the validity of the certificates already issued to the remaining patients be extended.

Maria Lúcia Amaral suggests that in the case of cancer patients, this immediate declaration of incapacity of 60% is valid for five years or until the medical board is held, if it occurs earlier.

This is the second recommendation of the Ombudsman on the issuing of the Multi-Purpose Medical Disability Certificate (AMIM), which has suffered many delays, mainly because the scarcity of means that already existed was joined by the diversion of public health doctors because of the Covid-19 pandemic

The extension of the validity of the certificates already issued will occur if the patient has requested the revalidation of the document in time, according to the provider's proposal.
