    PAs Push for Independent Practice

    Minnesota House of Representatives bill HF 3402 revises statutory provisions for physician assistants to move to an independent practice model. The bill allows PAs to order, perform, supervise and interpret diagnostic procedures and tests. The bill lacks clarification on the definition of diagnostic procedures and studies.

    The Minnesota Society of Radiologic Technologists opposes the bill as written and will seek amendatory language to clarify medical imaging is not included in the physician assistant’s scope of practice.

    The current MSRT Bylaws do not articulate an effective pathway to allow a second alternate delegate to the ASRT House Of Delegates meeting to be selected given the event that a President-Elect is not seated at the Fall Annual Board Meeting. The following RED print Bylaw amendment has been approved by MSRT Board and will be brought to membership vote at the Fall 2019 business meeting in October.


    Currently written in the MSRT Bylaws - 2016 version


    ARTICLE VIII: DELEGATES TO THE ASRT HOUSE OF DELEGATES


    Section 1: AFFILIATE DELEGATES

    A. Two MSRT delegates and two alternate delegates shall be appointed by the MSRT. The Affiliate Delegates to the ASRT House of Delegates shall be the current MSRT President and the Immediate Past President. The Immediate Past President shall serve as the Senior Delegate. The alternate delegates shall be the President-Elect and a member of MSRT as selected by the MSRT Board that meets qualifications in Section 2.


    Suggested change to policy


    Section 1: AFFILIATE DELEGATES

    A. Two MSRT delegates and two alternate delegates shall be appointed by the MSRT. The Affiliate Delegates to the ASRT House of Delegates shall be the current MSRT President and the Immediate Past President. The Immediate Past President shall serve as the Senior Delegate. The alternate delegates shall be the President-Elect and a Board member of MSRT as selected by the MSRT Board that meets qualifications in Section 2. If President-Elect position is vacant the MSRT Board will appoint a MSRT member that meets qualifications in Section 2.
