February Legislative Successes

PROVISION TO ALLOW PAs TO PROVIDE HOSPICE CARE:

 

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

 

NEW RULE MAKES IT EASIER TO PRECEPT PA STUDENTS

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:

Optimal Team Practice (OTP) – MAPA’s Work Begins

So what does AAPAsGuidelines for State Regulation mean for the practicing PA in MN?  An AAPA policy is a goal, a vision and collective statement regarding the PA profession. It does not change state or federal practice laws.  MAPA, as the state academy and constituent organization of AAPA, now has national support to advance an intentional and specific process to move forward with measures outlined in OTP. Continue Reading »
