Medical experts assessing work ability can earn over €10,000 per month ({{commentsTotal}})

A total of €4.5 million has already been spent this year on assessing the work ability of persons with disabilities. Under the old system, however, the cost of these assessments was just a fraction of what it is today.

While medical experts were paid a total of €268,511 in 2015, prior to the nationwide work ability reform, for the assessment of the work ability of persons with disabilities, this year, a total of €4,452,709 has already been spent on the same, reported daily Eesti Päevaleht (link in Estonian).

According to the paper's information, more active medical experts focused primarily on such assessments can earn €10,000-12,000 per month. The work itself consists primarily of documentation-based evaluation, i.e. analyzing information on a computer, and drawing up a decision. The average cost of one individual assessment is nearly €100.

Prior to the work ability reform, expert analyses cost €4.50 each.
