Italy generally requests medical evidence in a letter under the heading “Institute Nationale della Providenza Sociale”, “Certificato Medico” . The folder may also include a physician's report, questionnaires, and certifications
of birth and marriage. To date, Italy has requested only general physical examinations,
making it necessary for the examiner to determine from the information on the “Certificato Medico”, what examinations are needed. However, Italy has agreed to start using a standard
form titled Request for Medical Examination or Medical Evidence. This form should
provide more specific information about the evidence or examination needed. Although
Italy has agreed to use the form, we are not certain when the form will be printed.
“Certificato Medico” (Mod. SS3). This form will provide the name and address of the individual, various
work activities and a summary of the medical history, physical condition, system review,
and diagnosis. (See Exhibit 2.)
“Relazione Medico Legale (SS4TP)”, “Referta Medico Legal (SS4)”, “Perizia Medica Dettagliata (Comunita Europee--E213)”. These forms are Italian medical questionnaires. Italy may occasionally submit one
of these forms and it will appear untranslated in the folder. The forms may also be
accompanied by a letter asking SSA to complete the form attached. The examiner should
disregard any of the above forms. In our negotiations, the Italian agency has indicated
they will accept our consultative reports in the style prepared.
