Legislation

Oklahoma State Capitol Building

The place for the latest state and federal advocacy news from the OAPA and the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA).  

The Oklahoma Legislature look to PAs to provide them with information on health care decisions affecting their communities.  It is crucial that PAs make their voices heard and together we can achieve the profession’s legislative priorities.

During the 2020 legislative session, OAPA’s priority bill, SB1915 passed and was signed by Governor Stitt. It became active on August 27, 2020. OAPA is working with the State Medical Board as rules need to be adjusted accordingly.

In 2021, OAPA was successful in helping to pass legislation for PAs to participate in telehealth and home health ordering services in Oklahoma.
