A07237 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A7237B
 
SPONSOR: Cusick
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to permitting certain physicians to practice medicine in New York state if they are licensed to practice in another state or territory   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To allow certain physicians an exemption to temporary practice medicine while travelling to New York State with a sports team.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one: amends section 6526 of the education law to add a new subdivision 10 to allow any physician who is licensed and in good stand- ing in any state within the US who meets a number of specific require- ments, an exemption in order to temporarily practice medicine while traveling with a sports team Section two: provides the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Currently, New York is among 4 other states (Idaho, North and South Dakota, and Wisconsin) that have no recognition of visiting team physi- cians. Physicians travel across state lines on a regular basis, but most physicians are only licensed in their home state, not all of the states in which their team is visiting. A team physician is hired to care for athletes on the team, whether that is high school, college or profes- sional level; this care does not end at the border, they attend games and practices wherever the team travels to. There is federal legislation that has been proposed and supported over the years which looks to address medical liability insurance. There is a need to ensure that the insurance provider will cover the professional's medical liability when they provide health care services outside the state of where they are licensed. While this piece is necessary, it has not been accomplished, and it does not address the need for each state to waive its physician licensure requirements for out-of-state sports medicine physicians when they provide care for an athlete or athletic team staff member at an athletic event.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2017: A.7237 - Referred to Higher Education/ S.4375 - Passed Senate.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after it shall have become law. Effective immediately, the addition, amendment and/or repeal of any rule or regulation necessary for the implementation of this act on its effective date are authorized and directed to be made and completed on or before such date.
