PLATFORM DATA:
    We PAs are a solution to many of the healthcare woes that occupy the headlines of every tweet, post and meme we see daily.  We have 50 years of proven effectiveness to deliver care with the same health outcomes as our physician and nursing providers.  If this is the evidence, why are we restrained in our practice?  Please answer some of these questions for yourself:

Why doesn’t every insurance company pay for our services?

Why do many health system administrators prefer to hire other providers?

Why are our jobs linked to the number of physicians available?

Why do other professionals own their own practice and we can’t?

No PA should think this is fair. We are highly trained professionals and our other healthcare team members either don’t know who we are or, don’t want us to compete. Other professions have stepped up to lobby and pass legislation that leaves the PA at a disadvantage.  NYSSPA has done a remarkable job but, we have become complacent.  We need to advocate for our future, not rely on the past. The AAPA HOD has passed OTP and we should be looking at the 4 OTP pillars for NY PA practice. Together, let us educate the state government, hospitals, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, and insurance companies to help New York PAs care for New Yorkers!
