MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The work is being carried out on behalf of the President of Russia.
Citizens with disabilities can now submit a full package of documents for receiving technical means of rehabilitation and other support measures through the portal of public services. The decree on this was signed by the Chairman of the Government Mikhail Mishustin.
Currently, only an application can be sent in a remote form. After that, you still need to personally bring to the social security authorities the originals of documents confirming the right to receive a particular service. The new portal service will simplify this process. Scans of all documents can be attached to the application and sent electronically to the social security authorities. After reviewing the application, a referral will come to your personal account to receive the necessary rehabilitation tool or service.
Thus, it will be possible to receive, for example, hearing aids, wheelchairs, speech synthesizers, prostheses, orthoses, as well as sign language and tiflosurd translation services, take a guide dog to help and compensate for the costs of its maintenance and veterinary services. When you request compensation for expenses, the money will automatically go to the account specified in the application.
A similar procedure will apply for veterans who need prosthetic and orthopedic aids.
The decision made is part of the large-scale work being carried out by the Government to transfer public services to electronic form so that citizens do not have to waste time visiting authorities and submitting paper documents.
The document will be published.
