A step towards greater PA autonomy

Guest JMPA

Recommended Posts

"As of January 1, 2020, when you treat an injured worker, you will submit your own medical reports and bills without the signature of a supervising physician. Consistent with New York State Education Department requirements, your supervising physician will retain their role as your supervisor, but no longer needs to sign your medical reports of treatment. See our fact sheet for more information on what it means to be a Board-authorized medical provider."

This was received as an email from NY state.

This is a tremendous step for our profession. Not only will the PA not require SP signature but will be held responsible for billing and deposition, thus recognizing the profession. I believe that this opens doors for future autonomy of the profession.
