Re-examination due to condition worsening

​A claimant whose condition has worsened is entitled to request re-examination of his claim six months after his claim was denied or was approved for a partial benefit, provided that he submits medical certification of the worsening of the condition. In a situation in which a person’s condition worsens, even if six months have not yet elapsed, a National Insurance Institute doctor may decide that the case should be re-examined in accordance with medical documents that were submitted.

The request should be sent on the form request for re-examination of entitlement to attendance allowance.

Please note: The National Insurance Institute is entitled to re-examine your medical and functional condition from time to time.
