This reduction in waiting time was possible thanks to the use of the Atestmed platform, which allows the analysis of medical certificates and reports without the need for an in-person medical examination.

Important changes

In December, for example, the average concession time was 26 days, an improvement compared to the 28 days recorded in November.

Throughout the year, 627,620 temporary disability benefits were granted through Atestmed, with December recording the highest number of grants.

How does INSS medical expertise work?

Medical expertise at the INSS is a procedure in which an expert doctor evaluates the worker’s health condition to verify their temporary or permanent incapacity for work due to illness or accidents.

During the examination, the expert analyzes the certificates, medical reports and performs a physical examination on the applicant. Based on this assessment, the expert decides on the granting, continuity or termination of benefits such as sickness benefit or disability retirement.

It is essential that the insured person presents all relevant medical documentation and is prepared to provide detailed information about their health condition.

Other INSS benefits that still require expertise

In addition to sickness benefit, other INSS benefits that require medical expertise include disability retirement, intended for those who are permanently unable to work.

There is accident assistance, for insured people who suffered accidents that resulted in permanent consequences affecting their work capacity.

In addition, there is also the Continuous Payment Benefit (BPC), offered to elderly people and people with disabilities who demonstrate that they do not have the means to provide for their own maintenance.

Medical expertise assesses the severity of health conditions and related incapacity, which are essential for granting these benefits.
