These documents were created based on the language of the Medical Practice Act and Colorado Medical Board Rule 400 at the time of its creation in January 2020. These documents should not be construed as legal advice. Because the facts/laws applicable to your situation may vary, modification of these documents may be warranted to ensure compliance with applicable legal requirements. Please contact your attorney or other professional advisors if you have any questions related to your legal obligations or rights, state or federal laws, or other legal questions.

There are additional federal regulations that impact the practice of PAs. Check out the American Academy of Physician Assistants for more information on federal legislative priorities.

Colorado representatives have been active in participating in advocating for federal legislative change through meeting with Colorado Senators and Representatives in Washington, D.C. We hope you will join us in this endeavor, and look for more opportunities through AAPA for future legislative advocacy!

CAPA is actively involved in the legislative and rule-making processes through the Governmental Affairs Committee. Curious about what CAPA is doing?
