The National Union of Banking Staff and Technicians (SNQTB) has just extended the services provided in the health care of its members, starting to reimburse the tests to Covid-19 prior to certain medical interventions (surgeries, deliveries, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, endoscopies and colonoscopies) and video consultations through a greater number of health providers, covering not only general and family medicine, but also several medical specialties.
In a statement, the union led by Paulo Gonçalves Marcos says that “due to the growing evolution of the need for diagnostic tests to Covid-19, and in order to complement the offer made available by the National Health Service, the SNQTB also negotiated the values of non-reimbursed tests with some health providers, through special conditions exclusive to members ”.
“In the current pandemic context, protecting the health of the population is one of our priorities. Through SAMS Quadros, a wide range of health care services are available and with these new measures we reinforce our performance in this area. We are always with our associates to support them and we will continue to work to offer them more and better services, adapted to the current context. The possibility of carrying out reimbursed video consultations is an adaptation to a new reality and one that has been an asset, avoiding travel to health units ”, stresses Paulo Gonçalves Marcos, president of SNQTB.
