A humanitarian issue

As already decided by the Supreme Court, after the unilateral termination of the collective health care plan, the operator must maintain the prescribed care for the hospitalized user or the user undergoing medical treatment that guarantees his survival or physical well-being.

An autism patient was affected by the termination of the group health plan

For example, Judge Marcia Alves Martinez Lobo, of the First Civil Court of Aguas Claras (DF), decided in an injunction that the healthcare provider must reinstate the contract with an autistic client undergoing treatment.

Last March, the operator unilaterally canceled several group subscriptions, including the Author Plan, without offering any other option.

In her ruling, the judge applied Syrians’ understanding of Truth and Justice. She pointed out that “it cannot be accepted that terminating the health contract solely on the basis of the employee’s will disrupts the treatment of diseases and hinders the full recovery of health of the sick beneficiary.”

The author was represented by an attorney Klismo Bastos.
