FLOOR ACTION:

SF 592 – Expanded scope of practice for physician assistants

SF 592 expands the practice and licensure of physician assistants (PAs) to allow them to practice at the top of their license. The bill allows PAs to practice under their own national provider identification number in the Medicaid program, which will expand access to health care across the state. The bill codifies several provisions currently in administrative rules relating to services performed by physician assistants.
