The operators of health plans should provide intestinal or urinary collection bags for beneficiaries who use the material. The measure was published on Friday (19), Normative Resolution No. 325 of the National Health Agency (ANS) and enters in force from May 30.

The standard also provides for the provision of protective equipment and safety used in conjunction with the collection bags, as the protective barriers of the skin. The application material should be made to the operator through medical report.

The standard was developed by the Technical Group that is revising the List of Procedures and Events Health and becomes part of the minimum mandatory coverage plans. This group representatives of the private health care sector, such as consumer protection agencies, health insurance providers, associations of health professionals and representatives of beneficiaries.

About 34 million people in Brazil utlilizam collection bags. There are a variety of conditions for which these grants can be given as: cancer, Chagas disease, Crohn's disease, congenital malformation, abdominal trauma, and other neurological diseases. The collection bags may be necessary temporarily or permanently.

In developing the standard, ANS bothered not only the distribution of grants, but also to avoid complications due to the procedure. Therefore, operators will be instructed to inform the patient about the use and self-care, explains Andrew Long, Chief Executive Officer of ANS.
