BILL NUMBER:S5412

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize certain health care professionals licensed to practice in
other jurisdictions to practice in this state in connection with an
event sanctioned by Remote Area Medical; and providing for the repeal of
such provisions upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE OF GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
The purpose of this bill is to
authorize certain health care professionals licensed to practice in
other jurisdictions to practice in this state in connection with an
event sanctioned by Remote Area Medical.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
The bill notwithstanding any
inconsistent provision of the law allows any person who is licensed
to practitioner in designated fields the ability to provide
professional services without first being licensed with title 8 of
the education law. Services will only be provided during the time
period specified by Remote Area Medical.

JUSTIFICATION:
The access to high quality health care services is a
concern of all New Yorkers. Access to such services is severely
limited for some residents of this state due to high cost of medical
procedures and now with the cuts the medicare in New York State even
more help is needed in helping the lower and. middle class. The
mobile health clinic began in 1985 serving undeveloped countries and
later rural America. Remote Area Medical provides various medical
services to people who are unable to gain access.They have provided
services in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. California has
implemented similar legislation allowing Remote Area Medical access
to its citizens in need of care after their reduction in Medicaid
services for the poor and the noticeable increased deductibles and
co-payments that have recently been associated with
employer-sponsored insurance programs.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately and shall
expire and be deemed repealed August 31, 2012.
