Legislative Wins

Overview

As always there were a number of major pieces of healthcare legislation introduced this Session.  We are proud to have worked firsthand on the development of successful legislation that will eliminate administrative burdens and barriers to care for all health care providers and their patients.  

Scope of practice legislation was introduced across a number of specialties from Physician Assistants to Advanced Practice Nurses to cosmetologists and audiologists to name a few.  We were involved in each of these fights, which the Legislature generally dislikes as well.  We will be working over the interim and next Session to address the patient safety and quality of care concerns that were contemplated and, in some cases, enacted this Session.

Strides were made in the ongoing effort to address fair payment and reimbursement by regulated health insurers.  Efforts to protect the State’s most vulnerable children through ensuring continuity of mental health care continued to advance as well.
