The requirements that you must meet to validate the medical certificate in the IEES

The medical certificate is issued by the medical professional of the Ecuadorian Social Security Institute (IESS) of the medical unit where the insured or dependent received care.

But if the affiliate was treated by a private doctor, he must revalidate the medical certificate _of illness, maternity or rest_ at the IESS health establishment closest to his place of work or home.

You can also validate medical certificates from 1 to 30 days of rest in an on-line.

The validation can be carried out up to eight days after the medical rest has ended.

In order for workers to carry out this validation without complications, it is mandatory for employers to keep their data and email updated.

The private medical certificate must be written on a computer and on the letterhead of the private doctor, hospital or clinic. This document must include the following information:

  • Place and date of issue.
  • Full names and surnames of the affiliate as stated in the citizenship card.
  • ID number.
  • Diagnosis (with ICD10 coding).
  • The number of rest days must be written in numbers and letters. eg “Five (5) rest days are required”.
  • Full name and surname of the doctor, and signature of the doctor.
  • Physician’s stamp stating the MSP affiliation code, names and surnames and specialization.

Illegible medical/rest certificates, with blackouts, smudges, smudges and/or amendments will not be approved.

These are the steps to carry out this procedure virtually:

  • Go to www.iess.gob.ec.
  • Click on the ad that will appear on the direct access screen.
  • Enter the ID number and password.
  • Select ‘Monetary Subsidy’ and continue the process.

Social Security members who are absent from work for more than three days receive sick pay; from the fourth day to 70 days, the IESS pays 75% of the average of the last three salaries before the onset of the illness (25% of the employer); from the 71st to the 182nd day of rest, pay 66%. There are companies that cover the counterparty, but they are not required by law. (YO)
