Welcome to Montana Academy of Physician Assistants
The Montana Academy of Physician Assistants (MTAPA) is a professional organization serving PAs across Montana. We represent PAs practicing in primary care, and those practicing in sub-specialties, including surgical specialties. Whether your practice is in the plains of Eastern Montana, or along the Rocky Mountains of Western Montana, MTAPA provides a unifying voice for all PAs across our great state.
The 64th Montana Legislature is currently in session
January 5 - April 29
Attention All Physician Assistants:
We would urge you to follow the link here for information about a Federal House Bill (HB1202) that allows for PAs to order and provide Hospice care to their Medicare patients. Please contact representative Zinke and let him know how PAs from around Montana feel about this issue. For Mr. Zinke's contact information, please see the legislative tab on the webiste above.

As of April 13th, it appears that the Creating the Healthy Montana Act to Expand Health Care Coverage (HELP Act) has cleared the House and is now going back to the Senate for approval of the House amendments. Likely a formality. It appears most likely that this bill is headed to Gov. Bullocks desk for signature. Thanks for all that may have called their elected officials and offered support for this bill.
Board Of Medical Examiners Update (4/14/2015)
The BOME's Rule Committee will be hearing our proposal this upcoming Friday (4/17/2015) afternoon. This proposal seeks to move the chart co-signature requirements from the State Level to the Practice Level. We will keep you posted on their decision following this meeting.
Thank you for your continued support, together we can accomplish much.
