The Utah Academy of PA’s is excited to announce that Senate bill 162 has passed the House and Senate and is on the way to be signed by Governor!
This Bill has the backing of the UMA and AAPA.
This bill allows the following:
- Removes the chart co-signature requirement for Schedule II and III controlled substances
- Revises language regarding chart review to provide for review of patient data as determined by the physician and PA, and
- Removes the requirement for an applicant for licensure to attest that they have a delegation of services agreement signed by any substitute physicians.
