New Physician Assistant Collaboration Law

The Idaho Board of Medicine (IDBOM) recently announced Idaho Senate Bill #1093, effective July 1, 2021, which delineates changes in the regulation of the practice of physician assistants (PA’s) and their supervising physicians. The major change involves the removal of the requirement for PA’s to have a supervising physician and replacing that with a collaborative practice agreement (CPA).

Moving forward, IPN will require all PA’s to provide a copy of the CPA they have in place or complete IPN’s Attestation of Collaborative Practice Agreement form when submitting either an initial or recredentialing application.
