Important changes have occurred to the scope of practice for physician assistants (PA). After two years of fiercely fought and failed legislative attempts, SB23-83 passed the legislature and was signed into law by Governor Polis in spring 2023 with important amendments secured by CMS. Instead of practicing medicine under the direct supervision of a physician, a physician assistant must now enter into a collaborative agreement with a physician. The Colorado Board of Medicine recently finalized regulations to operationalize the law (changing what was Rule 400 to the new Rule 1.15 [starting on page 21]). The new law changes how PAs practice, and this webinar will dive deeper into these changes and what physicians need to know to be in compliance with the law.

If you work with PAs, CMS encourages you to register for this webinar.
