Prepared by: Health Policy Committee (HP)
The bill requires a physician assistant (PA), as a part of the biennial licensure renewal process, to respond to a workforce survey to collect information regarding the PA’s practice. The Department of Health must issue a nondisciplinary citation to a PA who fails to complete the survey within 90 days after the renewal of his or her license. The citation must notify the PA who fails to complete the required survey that his or her licensure will not be subsequently renewed unless the PA completes the survey.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect upon becoming law.
Vote: Senate 36-0; House 118-0
