PA Incorporation Era (1981-1990)

Physician Assistant roles expand into all medical and surgical specialties and settings. Workforce studies continued to be positive recognizing PA contributions to the provision of quality, accessible and cost-saving health care services. PAs gain reimbursement of services they render under Medicare Part B. PAs are granted commissioned officer status in the uniformed services. States begin to pass and revise legislation that allows PAs prescriptive privileges. Studies indicate that PAs are highly satisfied with their jobs. PA programs begin to offer master degrees to their graduates.
