Representing PAs before the Missouri Legislature and the Board of Healing Arts is an important part of MOAPA’s mission. MOAPA works hard to improve the laws and regulations that govern the practice of PAs and to provide PAs' input on a range of other health care legislation.
For the past several years, MOAPA has worked to change Missouri's laws on physician supervision of PAs. We seek laws that ensure appropriate supervision of PAs while giving Physician/PA teams the flexibility they require to meet patient needs. MOAPA will only be successful with the active participation of PAs and PA supporters from around the state.
