(1) A physician assistant may not work in a remote site without approval of the commission or its designee. A physician may not supervise more than three physician assistants who are working in remote sites, or more physician assistants than the physician can adequately supervise.

(a) There is a demonstrated need for such use;

The commission will consider each request on an individual basis.
