    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.
