Each public or private institution under agreement must submit its criteria for access to services to the integrated health and social services centre for approval, in particular with respect to the admission and discharge of users and the policies for their transfer. In regions having more than one integrated centre, the one resulting from the amalgamation of the agency and other institutions is responsible for approving access criteria.
The Minister may require a public or private institution under agreement with a special vocation to submit its access criteria directly to the Minister for approval. In such cases, the Minister must obtain the opinion of the integrated centre concerned.
