APA provides feedback to CMS on APRN and PA supervision

APA expressed our concerns to CMS regarding the elimination of Medicare supervision and licensure requirements that are more stringent than other applicable federal or state laws, potentially resulting in the reduction of supervision requirements for Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) and Physician Assistants (PAs).

APA requested a study about the impact of such a change, recommended an approach that incentivizes a team-based approach, improves access to care for all patients, improves quality of care by standardizing training for APRNs and PAs nationally, and addresses inequities in reimbursement for supervision of psychiatric trainees. APA also signed on to an AMA letter.
