PA Bill 2378 | Effective July 1, 2021

WAPA PA Bill 2378 takes effect on July 1, 2021.

There are four major components of SB 2378:

  • Moves the Delegation Agreements to the practice level; you only need to send a copy to the Washington Medical Commission (WMC).
  • It changes physician/PA ratios to 10:1; if your practice already has a “waiver” for more, you do not need to resubmit.
  • It removes remote site restrictions; 
  • It removes duplicate regulatory structures for PAs working with MDs and DOs by placing all PAs under the Medical Commission. (7/1/21 no new licenses issued from the Osteopathic Board (BOOMS) – transition will be final by July 1, 2022)
