The purpose of the application and assessment process is to establish and administer province-wide diagnostic services based on the rational distribution of services and actual need. 

Any publicly or privately-owned Diagnostic Facility in British Columbia intending to bill BC’s Medical Services Plan for outpatient diagnostic services must obtain a Certificate of Approval, granted by the Advisory Committee on Diagnostic Facilities or the Medical Services Commission.

All Certificates of Approval are site-and-owner specific and cannot be transferred or assigned.  If a facility is sold, the new owner must apply for a new Certificate of Approval in order to bill for the provision of outpatient services.

Here you will find new, expansion, and relocation application forms for publicly-owned and privately-owned facilities.
