Posted on: 11/17/2017

Medical assistants are not licensed in Illinois, and have no practice act or administrative rules. Exactly what medical assistants can and cannot do is often confusing.

That’s why ISMS developed a new medical legal guideline, Medical Assistant Scope of Practice, which outlines the function of medical assistants and clarifies their tasks.
