Attending Provider

An individual who is licensed under applicable State law to provide maternity or pediatric care and who is directly responsible for providing such care to a mother or newborn child. Therefore, a plan, hospital, managed care organization, or other issuer is not an attending provider. However, a nurse midwife or a physician assistant may be an attending provider if licensed in the State to provide maternity or pediatric care in connection with childbirth.

Note: This definition only applies to the elaws section of the Newborns' and Mothers' Health Protection Act.
