February Legislative Successes




PAs in MN and across the country have a lot to celebrate as Congress finally passed, and President Trump signed into law on Friday 2/9/2018, a provision that allows PAs to manage and provide hospice care for their patients.  This new law also allows PAs to supervise cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs under Medicare.  This legislative victory was a result of years of hard work by hundreds of PAs across the country who took the time to reach out to their legislators at the federal level as well as the advocacy efforts of state legislative and AAPA advocacy teams.



Link to AAPA Article





The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) just revised their policy on student’s participation in clinical documentation, which will make it easier to precept PA students.  They have removed the restrictions that previously prohibited students from participating in billable visit documentation.  See the full article here.

If you are interested in precepting students and earning Category 1 CME while giving back to the PA profession please contact one of the four MN PA programs at:

MAPA February PSA

American Heart Month


February is American Heart Month and thus the choice of “Heart Health” as the topic for this month’s PSA.  Here are some sobering statistics from the American Heart Association:

  • On average, someone dies of Cardiovascular Disease every 40 seconds. That is about 2,200 each day.
  • On average, someone in the US has a stroke every 40 seconds. This is about 795,000 new or recurrent stroke each year. On average, someone dies of a stroke every 4 minutes
  • 85.7 million, or 34.0% of US adults are estimated to have hypertension, based on 2011-2014 data.  28.5 million, or 11.9% of US adults are estimated to have total serum cholesterol levels ≥240 mg/dL, based on 2011-2014 data.
  • 23.4 million, or 9.1% of US adults are estimated to have diagnosed diabetes, based on 2011-2014 data. 1 in 6 males and 1 in 7 females in the United States are current smokers, based on 2015 data.
  • On average, 1 in 3 adults, or 30.4% Do not engage in leisure time physical activity. Hispanic and Non-Hispanic black adults were more likely to be inactive.
