Consultation is now open for applications that are anticipated to be considered by the Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC) on 27-28 July 2023  

MSAC values consultation input from individuals and organisations with an interest in an application that it is considering, including experience of the medical conditions, services or technologies being addressed by the application.   

It is anticipated that the below-mentioned applications will proceed to MSAC in July 2023. Consultation input must be received by no later than          Friday, 9 June 2023 for it to be considered by MSAC. A consultation survey form is available on the relevant application webpage.

What happens next

Once the consultation closes, submissions will be compiled and considered by MSAC.

Once it has finalised its appraisal of an application for public funding, MSAC publishes a Public Summary Document (PSD). The PSD captures MSAC deliberations and key advice to the Minister, which is generally to either support funding; not support funding; or defer consideration. 

PSDs are generally published approximately three (3) months after the MSAC meeting at which the application was considered. The PSD can be located on the relevant application webpage on the MSAC website.
