In some cities, the insured wait over 6 months to make medical expertise in INSS.

The Brazilian waits on average 19 days for your certificate of absence from work for more than 15 days is validated by the National Institute of Social Security (INSS). But the timing differences between the 1.5 thousand branches of the organ in the entire country is showing the biggest problems. While in some expertise is made on the same day in other waiting exceed five months, as in Porto Velho, Rondônia.

The data were presented this week at the debate the Commission on Social Security and Family Board made on the problem. For the representative of the Federal Prosecutor, Darcy Vitobello, many Brazilians are in trouble because of the slowness of the expertise of the INSS. The wait time is unacceptable today in some places. The citizen can not afford to feed themselves, the person is sick and can not afford to wait that long.

Director of Occupational Health INSS, Antonio Sérgio Martins Carneiro, admitted the problem but says that actions such as the execution of 300 experts gazetted, the removal of local medical professionals without hiring experts and temporary agencies considered critical are already improving service to policyholders.

According to Sérgio Carneiro, was established as a goal of excellence 15 days of waiting for the insured. We're now watching this month.

The decision of the INSS hiring medical experts considered temporary for emergency cases, such as the Old Port, is viewed with reservation by the president of the National Association of Medical Experts Social Security (ANMP), Jarbas Simas. "Temps were banned for a while due to misconceptions in assessment. Successful experiments career experts gazetted to prevent fraud. A measure should be used with caution," he said.

Jarbas Simas supports the new measures announced to streamline the expertise to policyholders, but warns that other actions are necessary to attract doctors to the career. "Today there is much turnover and expertise is a specialized service demand training. Our proposal is that, with the decrease in the number of calls, it is possible to relax the workload, decreasing to 20 hours per week, which would make the contract attractive to professionals, "he explained.

The INSS currently has 4,700 medical skills that make 700 000 per month.
