. The NP is then left to find another physician on the panel to engage in the collaborative relationship. This can be a complicated and cumbersome process for the NP Another example is when the physician is investigated by the insurance company or has practice privileges suspended by the Office of Professional Practice. The APRN is then dually unable to practice or bill the insurance company due to the requirement that the collaborating physician must remain on the panel. These barriers have a serious impact; they can disrupt the continuity of care and put patients at risk, especially those patients that are considered part of vulnerable populations, such as the mentally ill (NPANYS, 2010).

Clinical vignette (2010) fln 7\PRN-PMH in private practice is notified that her collaborating

psychiatrist is involved in a complicated and potentially careerparatyzing

incident. The psychiatric NP consulted her own legal counsel due to the established statutory collaboration mandates with this psychiatrist, fl recommendation was made to break ties with the psychiatrist and find a replacement. Unfortunately, a replacement was not accessible and led to an immediate need to close the NP’s private practice due to loss of the statutory collaborative agreement. This led to a rapid transition and termination for 70 patients. The incident resulted in a major disruption of care and a difficult transition for all patients involved. Most insurance companies only allow the NP empanelment if they are in a collaborative agreement with a paneled physician. If the paneled physician terminates with the insurance company, due to reduced reimbursement rates or changes to the insurance company policies, the NP must also terminate.

The hope is that this bill will promote practice opportunities for NPs.

Opposition Major opposition to the NP Modernization Act comes from the

insurance companies who set up barriers for empanelment based on the statutory collaborative agreements (Elwell, 2007).

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
