Wyoming Governor Signs Physician Assistant Scope Bill into Law

Wyoming’s governor signs legislation into law that modifies supervision requirements of physician assistants (PAs). Maine senator introduces a bill to modify reimbursement for out-of-network providers.

Scope of Practice

Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon signed Senate File (SF) 33 into law. The law will change the practice agreement between a PA and physician from a supervising to a collaborating agreement.

In Maine, Legislative Document (LD) 1481 was introduced in the Senate and referred to the Committee on Health Coverage, Insurance and Financial Services. The bill would permit carriers to reimburse out-of-network providers or enrollees, as applicable, at the median network rate if the Maine Health Data Organization claims data is insufficient or otherwise inapplicable.
