Attention Cali PAs!!! Call to action!

Recommended Posts

We need Cali PAs to contact your assemblymemebers and support SB697 to make sure it makes it out of assembly.

 

It's easy just click the link and fill out your info took me all of 20 seconds!

It may have passed assembly already but I got the call to action in my LinkedIn so I did it. Doesn't hurt to fill it out and send it.

SB697 is going to Gov Newsom's desk. Please check your email for the call to action from CAPA to send the governor an email about signing this into law.

Just got this in email today:

SB 697 (Caballero) is on the Governor’s desk – along with hundreds of other bills. The deadline for the Governor to sign or veto bills is October 13, 2019. We hope you already responded to our Call to Action requesting that you send an email to the Governor asking him to sign this important piece of legislation. Please check your inbox (and junk folder) for the Call to Action and send the requested email now, if you haven’t already. 

 

If SB 697 becomes law, your scope will be derived from your competencies and capabilities – not delegated to you by a physician. You will be held like other healthcare professionals to the standard of care requirement. You and the practice know your education, training, experience and what professional services you are competent and capable to provide. No longer will you be required to have a Delegation of Services Agreement (DSA). You will own your scope. We will anxiously await word from Governor Newsom. We will know something no later than October 13, 2019.

Can one of you guys hit the highlights of what this does for us in CA?  I read through it, but am not that familiar with the laws their now.  Thanks.

It would eliminate DSAs and minimum mandatory cosigs etc.
