S. Sharmazanov, who had a third-degree disability, was re-examined on July 11, 2017, and assigned a third-degree disability. However, taking into account his health issues, he should have been assigned a second-degree disability.
S. Sharmazanov’s sister, turning to HCA Vanadzor, informed that throughout years not only had there not been any improvement in his health, but there had also been deterioration. Now there are disorders in the functions of his organism that apply to the second-degree limitations of ability as defined by the RA decision on “Defining the criteria of medical-social expertise”.
With the decision to assign a third-degree disability, the Committee of the medical-social expertise did not ensure an unbiased discussion, did not examine the existing evidence in regard to the case and did not pay proper attention to all the health issues of S. Sharmazanov’s.
Furthermore, with that decision assigning a third-degree disability to a person with disorders corresponding to a second-degree disability was not substantiated.
Through this, the Committee violated the provisions of providing a well-rounded, comprehensive and unbiased discussion as prescribed by the RA Law on “The Fundamentals of Administration and Administrative Procedure”.
Taking into consideration the aforementioned violations, S. Sharmazanov, with the support of HCA Vanadzor, lodged an appeal against the decision of July 11, 2017, which assigned him a third-degree disability.
As a result of this, the Medical-Social Expertise Agency re-examined S. Sharmazanov and recognized him as a person with a second-degree disability.
