ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the provision to equate nurse practitioners with primary care physicians in the U.S. The provision is part of an amendment to the Massachusetts law that requires all residents to maintain health insurance that was mandated as of July 1, 2007. It states that the law includes a line that the participating nurse practitioners must work in collaboration with a physician, a condition acceptable to Doctor Ted Epperly, president of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
