Bill Description: Senate Bill 1093 reduces regulations for physician assistants.

Rating: +1

Does it increase barriers to entry into the market? Examples include occupational licensure, the minimum wage, and restrictions on home businesses. Conversely, does it remove barriers to entry into the market?

Senate Bill 1093 amends Section 54-1807A, Idaho Code, to remove language requiring "supervising physicians" for physician assistants and instead allow them to practice with a "collaborative practice agreement." The degree of independence afforded to physician assistants will be based on the "education, experience, and competence of the physician assistant."

The changes made by this bill should allow physician assistants greater access to the market and benefit areas of the state that have a shortage of physicians.
