Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC)

Welcome to the Medical Services Advisory Committee

The Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC) is an independent expert committee that provides advice to the Minister for Health on the strength of the evidence relating to the comparative safety, clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of any new or existing medical service or technology, and the circumstances under which public funding should be supported through listing on the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS).

Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Website

The website is part of the Australian Government's response to the December 2009 Review of Health Technology Assessment in Australia (HTA Review) and arose from stakeholders identifying the need to have comprehensive information about Australian Government HTA processes available in one central point in an easy to use format.
The website also provides a portal to the HTA Access Point (referred to during the HTA Review as a single entry point) which will assist potential applicants seeking assessment of co-dependent and hybrid technologies.
