Prior to the passage of HB 111, The Ohio Law was an often tedious process, requiring the submission of supervisory agreements to the Board of Directors and waiting for them to be approved before the PA began its practice for a new employer. This registration and waiting process took time, often resulted in delays in the start of work, access to patients and contributed to scheduling problems. In addition, under current legislation, the supervisory agreements had a two-year period and required an extension and re-submission of the supervisory agreement for board approval. In addition, all amendments were to be submitted to the board and the amendments did not change the expiry dates of the original agreements. As a result, these provisions have created a heavy administrative burden for PA employers. The passage of HB 111 should alleviate these problems and streamline the use of P.A. by Ohio employers and physicians. For simplicity`s sake, the Commission has updated the surveillance agreement forms in the following links. Under the amended status, it is the responsibility of physicians who supervise medical assistants to ensure that their supervisory agreement is in accordance with Ohio law and to understand and perform their duties and supervisors.

The Physicians` Order is legally authorized to impose a civil fine of up to US$1,000 if it finds that the supervised medical assistant has performed in a manner that departs from the terms of the monitoring agreement and/or that the treating physician has been deviated from the terms of the monitoring agreement approved by the Medical Board. In a way, the audit and authorization process of the Chamber of Supervisory Agreements served as a safety net for the respect of physicians. Questions can be asked at OAPA at oapa@ohiopa.com or 800/292-4997. The link to the form agreements is available here: www.med.ohio.gov/Apply/Physician-Assistant-PA. In summary, there are no extensions, no 5-day waiting period and the eLicense system for submitting monitoring agreements has not been deactivated with immediate effect. From now on, for new hires, the monitoring contract is signed and stored on the training site and they can start working immediately. You can use any form you like, but the OSMB recommends using your forms because these forms meet legal requirements. For those with existing monitoring agreements, nothing is necessary (other than making sure that a copy is stored on the exercise site), even if they are intended for renewal. Ensure that any changes to the agreements by September 26, 2018 result in a new monitoring agreement to be retained. Make sure that all the monitoring agreements you have on file on September 26, 2018 are correct. After 26 September, the College of Physicians will begin the audit procedure and there will be penalties for non-compliance.

Until recently, the supervisory physician was required to provide a copy of the monitoring agreement to the Ohio Medical Council, which would allow him to verify compliance with the Ohio 4730.19 surveillance code. In the event of compliance, the monitoring agreement would take effect at the end of the fifth working day following receipt of the agreement, unless the board notifies the supervisory physician of any breaches or breaches. According to the board, the attending physician had the opportunity to revise the monitoring agreement and resubmit it for approval. The Act provides that the supervision arrangements for medical assistants who practice a medical practice contain conditions that specify: (a) the responsibilities to be performed by the supervisory physician, including the performance of the tasks listed in Ohio, the revised code 4730.21 and the correct delegation of medical duties in accordance with the Ohio Administrative Code 4731-23-02; (b) the tasks that the medical assistant must perform in the exercise of medically controlled delegated services and tasks; (c) restrictions on the responsibilities of the medical assistant; and (d) the circumstances in which the medical assistant must refer the medical
