Amendment to the healthcare providers establishments regime29 August, 2019
Decree-Law 125/2019, of 28 August
This diploma amends the legal regime that regulates the opening and operation of healthcare providers establishments (Decree-Law 127/2014, of 22 August).
The Decree-Law 127/2014 provided for a 5-year adaptation period to the new rules by healthcare providers establishments with licenses in force on the date of the new regime entry into force (on 01/09/2014), which would expire on 01/09/2019. These new rules result either from Decree-Law 127/2014 itself and from the ordinances provided for by it (some of them not yet approved).
Through this amendment, healthcare providers establishments that already had a license before 01/09/2014 now have an extension of the adaptation period until 31/08/2023 for the ordinances provided for in that regime that have not yet been approved.
