Disability news: sharing knowledge

Persons with disabilities are people whose ability to function in society is limited due to mental, physical, psychological or sensory impairments, resulting in the recognition of a disability. In Russia, the status of “disabled person” is assigned by institutions of medical and social expert assessment. This is both a legal and medical procedure. Current news about people with disabilities and the payments they are entitled to can be found in the special section of the Pronedra website.

The establishment of a disability group has social and legal meaning, as it assumes certain special relations with the public:

  • availability of benefits for disabled people;
  • payment of disability pensions;
  • limitations in legal capacity and ability to work.

The right to receive monthly monetary payments (UDV) in Russia belongs to Heroes of the Russian Federation, as well as to members of their families, Chernobyl victims, veterans, and disabled persons. The size of the UDV directly depends on the category of recipients.

UDV for disabled people in Russia since the year

  • Disabled veterans – 5,356.59 rubles.
  • Group I Disabled – 3,750.30 rub.
  • Group II Disabled – 2,678.31 rub.
  • Group III Disabled – 2,144 rub.
  • Disabled children – 2,678.31 rub.
  • Disabled Chernobyl victims – 2,678.31 rubles.

Some experts tend to view disability as a form of social inequality.

A new wheelchair or a prosthesis will be given only after the conclusion of the medical and technical expertise

The Ministry of Labor of the Russian Federation has approved the list of rehabilitation devices, replacement of which at the expiration of the established period of use should be confirmed by the conclusion of the medical and technical expertise.

According to Order No. 521n of the Ministry of Labor, the replacement of the aforementioned rehabilitation devices upon expiration of the established period of use may only be performed after confirmation by a medical and technical expert evaluation. The conclusion must state that the wheelchair or other rehabilitation device, specified in the list, does indeed require replacement.

A medical-technical expert assessment report will also be required when purchasing a wheelchair at one’s own expense, with the subsequent receipt of compensation. It will be necessary to determine whether the wheelchair, prosthetic or orthosis, acquired by the disabled person at his own expense, corresponds to the technical means of rehabilitation, prosthetics and prosthetic/orthopedic devices provided by the authorized agency.

What does this mean?

For example, you were given an active wheelchair, before the aforementioned order you should have been given a wheelchair at the end of its service life (4 years) regardless of its current condition or compensate for the one you purchased. Now the technical commission will consider the condition of the wheelchair and only after that will decide whether to give you a new one or to use the old one. There are obvious savings at the expense of people with disabilities.
