Information for Employers
the hiring of PAs in various practice settings. The information, available to CAPA member PAs and their
employers, will serve to clarify many aspects of the physician/PA partnership. We have included
excerpts from California laws and regulations as well as policies from other agencies such as Medicare
and Medi-Cal with regard to PA practice.
This guide is meant to provide current information, illustrating how PAs are a unique solution to the
challenge of providing high value and quality healthcare. The California Academy of PAs represents the
majority of PAs in California.
