SB 697 empowers PAs, strengthens team-based practices and provides patients increased access to quality, team-based healthcare.

SB 697 Benefits You, Patients, Physicians and PA Employers
The purpose of SB 697 is to reduce the restrictive barriers currently placed on PAs and instead allows practices to determine how best to work with each unique PA in each unique setting. Each practice knows how best to utilize PAs, and the physicians who work with PAs know how best to supervise them. One size does not fit all.
Can we agree, it is not up to your employer to pay your
CAPA membership dues? It is your responsibility.
