A physician seeking to supervise one or more physician assistants through a physician supervisory plan shall submit to the state medical board an application for approval of a physician supervisory plan. The physician shall provide all information determined by the board to be necessary to process the application. The physician may include in the application the names, business addresses, and business telephone numbers of at least two physicians who have agreed to act as alternate supervising physicians during periods in which the physician will be unable to provide supervision in accordance with section 4730.21 of the Revised Code. Application for approval of a physician supervisory plan shall be made on a form prescribed and furnished by the board. Each application shall include a copy of the proposed plan. The proposed plan may be based on any model physician supervisory plan approved under section 4730.06 of the Revised Code. If the plan includes a special services portion, that portion may be based on any model special services portion approved under section 4730.06 of the Revised Code. The board shall develop a form that may be used when two or more physicians wish to apply at the same time for approval of the same physician supervisory plan. When making simultaneous applications with this form, the physicians are required to include only one copy of the proposed plan with all of their applications.
