Access for PAtients Act

IAPA is legislatively engaged on both the state and national levels. Currently, we've narrowed our focus to the Access for PAtients Act, a statewide effort developed with the intent to:
  • Remove outdated regulations
  • Create parity
  • Improve access to health care with a fair and equitable job market
  • Retain resident PAs and PA students in the State of Illinois
