Support SF 2357 and HF 2542

Across Iowa, rural areas and medically underserved communities are facing a serious healthcare provider shortage. Highly educated and skilled PAs stand ready to answer the call but are restricted by unnecessary and outdated practice barriers. It’s time that we modernize Iowa’s PA practice laws and expand access to safe, high-quality healthcare teams.


Support legislation that modernizes PA practice laws in Iowa!

Legislation to modernize PA practice laws in Iowa will:

  • Allow PAs to prescribe all medications for which they have the training or experience to prescribe, bringing Iowa in line with the laws in surrounding states;
  • Update the language surrounding PA supervision and practice to increase flexibility while preserving the PA-physician team dynamic;
  • Allow PAs to be rendering providers under Medicaid (a provision currently adopted in 44 other states); and
  • Amend statutory language to add PAs to provisions related to damages for medical malpractice claims and dispensing of medications to patients in certain situations.
