When do I ask for a medical certificate?

Given that the health system is overburdened, the obligation to provide a medical certificate should be more flexible (after 5 days instead of the usual 3); however, note that in the case of a long-term illness, it is the date of the start of incapacity for work that must be mentioned on the medical certificate that will be used for a claim for medical insurance for loss of income.

Only medical certificates declaring incapacity for work grant the right to the daily allowances for medical insurance for loss of income as of the 31st day.
