HB 2975 would license Anesthesiologist Assistants as part of a physician-led team. New health care delivery system reforms hinge on a team-based approach to patient care. Anesthesiologists have been the leaders by practicing in a team care model for decades. Anesthesiologist Assistants are a welcome addition to the anesthesia team!
Contact your state legislator and ask for their support :
* A physician-led team model of care with flexibility under physician leadership ensures access to cost-effective and high quality health care.
* The team model of care was found to be the safest compared to working alone.
* Anesthesiologist Assistants (AA’s) are providers that will help ensure that physician-led team based anesthesiology care will be available to all patients in Illinois.
