SACRAMENTO—Today, Senate Bill 697 by state Senator Anna M. Caballero, D-Salinas, was signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom. SB 697 eliminates outmoded requirements that Physician Assistants (PA) work under by creating a more flexible work arrangement, and ends the disparities between PAs and other medical providers.

Many physicians and PAs currently work in group practices or hospital settings where archaic state laws interfere with practice-level decisions about how patient-care teams can best meet the quality and access needs of patients. The bill will enhance the flexibility of healthcare teams at the practice level in order to increase healthcare access, especially in rural communities, during a critical time for Californians.
