BREAKING NEWS: Another arbitrary PA practice barrier is broken in New York. NYSSPA is pleased to announce a major victory - The final, adopted version of the 2019 Governor's Budget included statutory changes that will ensure that workers injured on the job will have greater access to care by adding PAs to the list of “medical professionals” identified as care providers under the workers' compensation system. NYSSPA has heard from members who were frustrated by the fact that the law prevented PAs from directly participating in the workers' compensation program and fully servicing patient needs. This will no longer be a concern effective January 1, 2020. Updates will be issued as details become available.
