In Ohio physicians must delegate duties to medical assistants. This may soon change if a bill being introduced into the Ohio House of Representatives makes its way through the legislative process. Representative Dorothy Pelanda will be presenting the bill in the near future which will allow advanced practice nurses to delegate to unlicensed medical personnel. This translates to having nurse practitioners delegating the passing of medications, administering injections, etc. to medical assistants.
While the bill does not specifically address the CMA(AAMA) credential, the OSSMA would love to show our support for this potential legislation. This bill will show just how important the medical assistant is in the healthcare field and will improve our utilization in the medical office setting.
To make supporting this bill easy for our OSSMA members and the medical assisting community at-large in Ohio, we have added a petition box on the main OSSMA web page. You can find it right under President Browder’s photo on the right hand side labeled, “Sign the Petition”. We encourage all MAs in Ohio to sign the petition to support efforts to allow nurse practitioners to delegate to MAs.
If you are interested in emailing Representative Pelanda personally, you may do so by clicking this link: http://www.ohiohouse.gov/dorothy-pelanda/contact
Loxie Kistler, OSSMA Speaker of the House and AAMA Trustee, has also drafted an example support letter for your convenience. Feel free to print it out and mail it to Representative Pelanda or copy and email it.
