The Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations has responded to the request of the Community of Madrid for be able to process the discharge and discharge for COVID simultaneously with the aim of decongesting Primary Care and ‘freeing’ doctors from bureaucracy.

The answer has been that the autonomous communities can already carry out this procedure at the same time and that the patient’s medical discharge can occur automatically within a specified period.

“The possibility of issuing simultaneous discharge and discharge in the same act by a physician already exists, does not require any regulatory change and is applied in some autonomous communities referring to COVID-19“, Sources from the ministry directed by José Luis Escrivá tell El Español.

They specify that “it is something that depends on the management of each community and that what you need to do is timely computer modifications“.

These changes must be included “in the application that the parties send to the National Institute of Social Security so that the program retains the registration until the date of the same and at that time it is transmitted to the Institute. This is called deferred automatic additions“.

The ministry does not specify which autonomous communities are already applying this formula that allows doctors to process temporary disability due to COVID and discharge in one go, avoiding a second patient visit.
