How to get the bonus for physical hardship: the requirements
To access the bonus for physical hardship, it is necessary to submit a request to the Municipality of residence by the owner of the power supply (even if different from the patient) or to the bodies designated by the Municipality, such as enabled CAFs. The subsidy is not linked to the ISEE and its amount depends on the annual consumption of the life-saving machinery used.
Therefore, there is no need to submit any medical certification to Enel Energia attesting to the necessity of using life-saving equipment. This documentation must be attached to the specific Form B, which should be submitted to the Municipality or authorized CAF (Tax Assistance Centers).
