A gap has developed within the United States health care industry between the abilities of non-physician care providers and the activities government regulation allows them to perform. Dominant provider groups extensively lobby state legislators in order to obtain scope-of-practice monopolies, which confer exclusive control over their areas of interest and exclude other equally-capable groups from performing such services.
