Description

Nurse practitioner; patient care team provider. Replaces the term "patient care team physician" with the term "patient care team provider" in the context of requirements for collaboration and consultation for nurse practitioners and provides that a nurse practitioner who is authorized to practice without a practice agreement may serve as a patient care team provider providing collaboration and consultation for nurse practitioners who are not authorized to practice without a practice agreement. Currently, only a licensed physician may provide collaboration and consultation, as evidenced by a practice agreement, for a nurse practitioner. The bill also eliminates authority of a physician on a patient care team to require a nurse practitioner practicing as part of a patient care team to be covered by a professional liability insurance policy and the requirement that a nurse practitioner practicing without a practice agreement obtain and maintain coverage by or be named insured on a professional liability insurance policy.
