Mass. bill urges inclusion of Physician Assistants as Providers

A bill proposed in Massachusetts would include physician assistants and nurse practitoners in the definition of providers.

The MMS (Mass. Medical Society) opposed this terminology as they fear it would limit consumer's ability to locate them as primary care providers.  And they state this would "undermine(s) the quality of our health care system."

Massachusetts Medical Society

Just sayin'

Wouldn't it be excellent if MDs, PAs and NPs were all on the same page on this matter?

These three groups of medical professionals work together as a team, why can't they unite in supporting one another in legislation?
