Establishment of disability. The procedure for conducting medical and social expertise
In this article, we provide you with information on how to establish disability.
According to the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan of April 13, 2005 “On Social Protection of Disabled Persons in the Republic of Kazakhstan”, a disabled person is a person who has an impairment of health with a persistent disorder of body functions caused by diseases, injuries (injuries, injuries, contusions), their consequences, defects, which leads to disability and the need for social protection.
The procedure for determining the disability, its causes and timing, the degree of disability is regulated by the Rules for Medical and Social Expertise, approved by order of the Minister of Healthcare and Social Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan dated January 30, 2015 No. 44.
Where to begin?
First you need to contact the medical organization at the place of residence/registration - to your local doctor or a specialist health care organization, who will determine the amount of necessary diagnostic and therapeutic measures, including, if indicated, inpatient examination and treatment, establish the diagnosis and degree of functional disorders .
After carrying out a complex of diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitation measures, in the presence of persistent disorders of the body, medical organizations send to the MSE persons no earlier than four months from the onset of temporary disability or diagnosis, except for those with anatomical defects and incurable patients with significant or pronounced impairment of body functions and the lack of rehabilitation potential.
At the same time, the completeness, volume of medical examination and the validity of sending persons to medical and social expertise (ITU) is provided by the chairman of the medical advisory commission (MAC) of the referring medical organization.
MSE is conducted by the territorial divisions of the Labor, Social Protection and Migration Committee of the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Republic of Kazakhstan (MSE departments).
Experts of MSE departments make an expert opinion, collectively, on the basis of the examination of the examined person, assessment of the degree of impairment of body functions and disability, including disability and review of submitted documents (clinical and functional, social, professional and other data).
MSE is held at the place of permanent residence (registration), but, in some cases, according to the opinion of the MAB, it can be carried out at home, at the place of treatment in healthcare organizations that provide inpatient care, in penitentiary institutions, remand centers or in absentia.
