For the third time, the mandatory re-registration period for the Unified Health System (SUS) card for residents of Salvador has been extended. Now, the population has until December 31 to update the registration.
- Do the SUS re-registration here
Last week, the deadline had been extended until October 31, after having gone through another extension. According to the city hall, the entire population must be registered, even people who have health insurance and do not frequently use public health units in the municipality. Those who have already registered with the community agent do not need to do it again.
The residents of the capital must make the update through the registration site of the Municipal Health Secretariat (SMS). In the online form, it is necessary to inform the number of the RG or of the birth certificate, CPF or SUS card, and the proof of residence in the name of the user or of a first degree relative.
Citizens can still register in person at one of the 152 Basic Units in the city. It is also possible for a family member to register other residents, just present all required documentation.
Until now, more than two million residents of the capital have already completed the mandatory re-registration of the SUS card. According to the city, of this total, about 1.3 million updates were made over the internet.
The measure follows the determination of the Federal Government, which instituted a new financing model for Primary Care, with registration being the main strategy for transferring resources from the Union to municipal administrations.
