New Registration

A physician wanting to submit claims to MSI for insured medical services needs to complete the following steps:

1. Obtain a valid license to practice in Nova Scotia through the College of Physicians and Surgeons.

2. Submit the following documents to MSI:

  • A covering letter detailing your plans to practice in Nova Scotia (full/part time/locum/joining group/area).
  • A completed MSI Physician Application Form.  The form requires the physician to identify a “submitter”.  A submitter is an individual or organization accredited by MSI to send electronic service encounter transactions on behalf of the physician and to retrieve results electronically back from MSI.  Each submitter is given a unique 3 character submitter ID.
  • A void cheque.  Required for verification of account details on the business arrangement form, as physician payments are issued electronically.

3. Purchase a software billing program from an accredited software vendor if you want to submit claims directly from your office.  Alternatively, you can contact a service bureau.  A service bureau is a company that will submit your claims to MSI for a fee.

Once all of the required documentation is received and processed, MSI will contact you with your unique billing number as well as any business arrangement number(s) required for claims submission.
