New physician assistant practice law resources

June 10, 2021

In 2020 the Washington State Legislature passed legislation to modernize the state’s physician assistant (PA) laws. Currently, PA’s and physicians work together under delegation agreements approved by the Washington Medical Commission (WMC). Beginning July 1, 2021, the delegation agreement process will be replaced with the new practice agreement system outlined in HB 2378 (2020). WMC posted its’ new practice agreement form on its website along with additional resources. Current delegation agreements will still be valid after July 1, 2021, unless the contents of a delegation agreement changes, or the PA changes jobs. WMC is still finalizing additional implementation items for HB 2378 but will host a webinar on June 16, 2021, that outlines the legal and regulatory changes impacting PA’s. Registration for WMC’s webinar is available here. WSHA’s bulletin on the new PA laws is available here.
