New PNAP — Work Place Restrictions

Another reason why to not trust PNAP, the PHMP, and Pennsylvania’s health care monitoring programs.  Previously, quarterly employment reporting only required confirmation of working and “steady and she goes” reports.  Effective July 2022, a new rule went into effect: “The licensee shall not work in any practice setting without workplace monitoring. The constant physical presence of the monitor/supervisor is not required. However, workplace monitoring requires that the monitor/supervisor be always readily available and accessible to the licensee via communication device. If you have any questions regarding this change, please contact your PNAP case manager for clarification.”

This is a huge change in the program for all current active licensees bound by consent agreement and for all future VRP and DMU forced consent agreements.  Securing employment with this type of work place monitor supervisory overlay is huge!  Call me to discuss your case.
