The bill enacts the Physician Assistant Licensure Compact
(compact). The compact is designed to enable a physician assistant with
a license in a state that has signed the compact (participating state) to
more easily become authorized to practice in any other participating state.
Participating states and physician assistants must meet specific
conditions enumerated in the compact to participate in the compact. The
compact allows only the participating state where a physician assistant is
licensed to discipline the physician assistant, but allows a participating
state where the physician assistant is practicing, but is not licensed, to
revoke the physician assistant's authority to practice in that state.
The bill authorizes the Colorado medical board (board) to
promulgate rules and to facilitate Colorado's participation in the compact,
including notifying the Compact Commission (commission) established
by the compact of any adverse action taken by the board against a
physician assistant licensed in Colorado or practicing in Colorado under
the compact. The commission includes a delegate from each participating
state and has the powers and duties set forth in the bill.
The compact becomes effective on the date the compact is enacted
in the seventh participating state.
