Optimal Team Practice

California will be one of the first states to sponsor legislation to bring forth changes in the PA Practice Act to address aspects of Optimal Team Practice (OTP). OTP emphasizes the profession’s commitment to team-based care; reaffirms that the degree of collaboration between PAs and physicians should be determined at the practice level; supports the elimination of provisions in laws and regulations that require a PA to have and/or report a supervisory, collaborating or other specific relationship with a physician in order to practice; advocates the establishment of autonomous state boards with voting membership comprised of a majority of PAs, to license, regulate and discipline PAs; and ensures PAs are eligible to be reimbursed directly by public and private insurance so they don’t remain hidden providers.
