Scope of Practice

The AAMA Achieves Legislative Victories in Maryland and Washington

During the COVID-19 pandemic, medical assistants have risen to the occasion by undertaking expanded duties. As a result, they have been given opportunities to join in combatting the pandemic because of favorable federal and state legislation, executive orders, and official rules and interpretations by federal agencies. These developments have been chronicled on the “State Scope of Practice Laws” webpage of the AAMA website, via this blog, and in CMA Today

Notably, two such bills from Maryland and Washington will have precedential weight and influence on future medical assisting laws and create a lasting impact extending well beyond the pandemic. 

To learn more about these momentous bills and related trends in medical assisting, read the July/August 2021 Public Affairs article in CMA Today, “The AAMA Achieves Legislative Victories in Maryland and Washington.”
