Announcement of Public Workshop, "Examining Health Care Competition" ("Health Care Workshop") Project No. P13-1207
In order to eliminate barriers for professional trade on mid level providers ( Physician Assistants/ Associates PAs and Nurse practitioners NPs) it is imperative the oppressive chains of restrictions to practice be removed. Supervision so it is called is chains placed without regard to ability and current health care quality as assessed by evidence based medicine. Both NP and PAs have proved to have outcomes essentially equal or better than the counter parts. It is time to remove barriers. How is the military able to uses PAs interchangeably with primary care MD/DOs? Because they are more than capable of independent practice as seen in the last two wars. It is time to stop the monopoly and allow evidence based on outcomes provide low cost quality care.
