Partido Popular Party CDS-PP Parliamentary Group Assembly of the Republic-Palace of Saint Benedict-1249-068 Lisboa-Phone: 21 391 9233-Fax: 21 391 7456 Email: gp_pp@pp.parlamento.pt draft law No. 528/X Disabled disease support armed forces Decree-Law No. 43/76, of 20 January, enshrined the Portuguese State recognition of the right to reparation of Portuguese citizens who have contracted or will contract deficiencies in military service in contexts of high danger, having been imposed measures and allocated means for ensuring the appropriate rehabilitation and assistance, contribute to your social integration.

Following the resolution of the Council of Ministers No. 102/2005, of 24 June, which imposed the convergence of the various subsystems of public health with the general scheme of sickness to the civil servants of the State, the Decree-Law nº 167/2005, of 23 September, came to establish a new and unique legal system of sickness to the military Armed forces appointed by ADM.

The new regime failed to recognize the specificity of the disability status of the armed forces (DFA), exacerbating the difficulties felt by those citizens in particular, in the field of medical assistance.

The CDS-PP considers that it is equally situations which are clearly different, confusing citizens who have contracted a disability in the service of the fatherland, in the line of duty in the military, in war or other scenarios of high danger, with the employees of the public administration, is not only blatantly unfair to the DFA, but violates the very principle of equality.

The DFA have sense, by your specificity, need wider support in the field of sickness, which becomes more effective and your full social integration.

2 For the CDS-PP it is important to ensure, for these citizens, reimbursement of health care expenses arising from illness, even if not directly related with the injuries that led to the disability, in part not reimbursed by the health subsystem which are beneficiaries, so that the Portuguese State will comply with the full right to repair and integration of these Portuguese citizens , thus mirroring the consideration moral and patriotic values for they represented should be of your part.

So: under d) of paragraph 1 of article 197 of the Constitution, the Partido Popular-CDS, presents to Parliament the following: single-Article draft law amendment to Decree-Law No. 43/76, of January 20 is amended article 14 of Decree-Law No. 43/76, of 20 January, which is replaced by the following: ' article 14 [...] 1-............................................. 2- .................................. 3- .................................. 4- .................................. 5- .................................. 6- .................................. 7- .................................. 8- .................................. 9- .................................. 10-The DFA are reimbursed by branches of origin of the armed forces, of the sums supported with healthcare, resulting from diseases not related to the injuries that led to the disability, in part not reimbursed by the health subsystem which are beneficiaries, when: 3 a) health care are provided by Military Health service establishments, Establishments of the national health service or other entities when determined by the respective Military Health Service; b) healthcare concern drug assistance.
