2018 PAMED
Legislative Priorities
* Informed Consent: We are working with stakeholders to introduce legislation to allow a
qualified physician to delegate his or her duty to obtain informed consent to another provider that has
knowledge of the patient's condition and the procedures to be performed. Visit www.pamedsoc.org/
informedconsent for an overview of the informed consent process in Pennsylvania.

* Team-based care and scope of practice: PAMED advocates for team-based care within
a physician-led team. We will continue to oppose SB 25 and HB 100, legislation that would allow
CRNPs in the state to practice independently. Additionally, PAMED leadership and members of
PAMED's Board of Trustees are currently in the process of reviewing legislative language in physician
assistant legislation (SB 895 and 896) to ensure that patient safety concerns are adequately addressed
and that the supervisory role of physicians with physician assistants is not eroded.

* Prior Authorization Reform: PAMED supports legislation that streamlines prior
authorization process with insurance plans. HB 1293 was introduced on May 1, 2017, and is now in
the Pa. House Insurance Committee. Find details about PAMED's grassroots advocacy initiative on
prior authorization and how you and your patients can help at www.pamedsoc.org/priorauth.

* Continuing to Address the Opioid Abuse Crisis: This legislative session, more than
25 pieces of opioids legislation that could affect physicians and patients have been introduced.
PAMED is committed to ensuring that the legislation preserves the physician-patient relationship
as well as allowing a physician to treat a patient as he/she sees fit. You can find PAMED resources,
including CME, to help physicians address opioid abuse at www.pamedsoc.org/OpioidResources.
Our CME can also help you meet the new licensure requirement.

* Maintenance of Certification (MOC): PAMED will be exploring possible legislative
solutions to ensure that the MOC process is fair for all physicians. Find news and updates on MOC at
www.pamedsoc.org/MOC.
