Advisory Committee on Diagnostic Facilities and ACDF Application/Notification Forms

The Advisory Committee on Diagnostic Facilities (the Committee) is a committee of the Medical Services Commission (the Commission), which provides advice, assistance and recommendations to support the Commission's powers, duties and functions in relation to outpatient diagnostic services and facilities.

One of the responsibilities of the Committee is to assist the Commission in reviewing applications for new, expansion and relocation of diagnostic service facilities.

The Committee is strictly focused on the approval of outpatient services payable by the provincial Medical Services Plan (MSP) and has no role in the provision of inpatient or other medical services that are not payable through MSP.

For more information on the application process and the policies that govern it, review the Policies and Guidelines of the Medical Services Commissions' Advisory Committee on Diagnostic Facilities.
