Provides other provisions regarding scope of practice. Deletes language requiring: a written collaborative agreement for all physician assistants to practice in the State; a written collaborative agreement to describe the working relationship of the physician assistant with the collaborating physician and the categories of care, treatment, or procedures to be provided by the physician assistant; and the collaborating physician to file with the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation notice when employing, discharging, or collaborating with a physician assistant.
