Summary

The bill modifies the relationship between a physician assistant
and a physician or podiatrist by removing the requirement that a physician
assistant be supervised by a physician or podiatrist. Instead:
  • A physician assistant who has completed fewer than 3,000
hours of post-graduate clinical practice experience or who
is beginning practice in a new specialty must enter into a
collaborative plan with a physician; and
  • A physician assistant who has completed fewer than 3,000
hours of post-graduate clinical practice must enter into a
collaborative plan with a podiatrist before practicing
podiatry.
A physician assistant who has completed 3,000 or more practice
hours or, for a physician assistant practicing a new specialty, has
completed 2,000 practice hours in the new specialty and at least 3,000
total practice hours, is no longer required to maintain a collaborative plan
and is instead required to consult with and refer to appropriate members
of the physician assistant's health-care team based on a patient's
condition; the physician assistant's education, experience, and
competencies; and the standard of care. The bill specifies the
requirements of the collaborative plan.
