Current state law requires an assistant physician, advances practice registered nurse, or physician assistant in a collaborative practice arrangement to maintain a 75 mile geographic proximity with their collaborating physician. This bill eliminates this requirement when providing care to a client of an alternative to abortion agency.

CPCs have come under increased scrutiny over the last several years, as investigations have revealed that centers across the country have provided inaccurate information and neglected to follow proper medical protocols. (Source.)
