The House Committee on the Defense of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities has approved a bill that would grant patients from the Unified Health System (SUS) with mobility impairments the right to receive medications, procedures, and vaccines at home.
The proposal that amends Organic Health LawIt also gives these patients the right to receive all medications at home for continuous use prescribed by a doctor free of charge.
Andrade says the proposal is in line with government policy for SUS, which in recent years has implemented measures to reduce the need for patients to go to health centers and hospitals, such as scheduling appointments remotely.
“Health care provided to SUS users has increasingly increased preventive and primary care measures, so that patients need less and less to travel unnecessarily to health units,” the MP said.
The approved proposal also specifies SUS to provide telephone or remote channels to allow citizens to schedule appointments and procedures remotely, and to monitor queues for procedures and surgeries.
All measures provided for in the alternative come into effect 90 days after the publication of the future law, to give the SUS time to adapt to the changes.
