Subject No. 046-1045

Temporary Suspension of Dr. Roy Caivano

Authorization No. 136404-1W

Date: March 26, 2018

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(4), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to temporarily suspend Dr. Roy Caivano’s authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers’ compensation system effective March 26, 2018. Dr. Caivano's last known business address is:

9905 Old Granbury Road
Crowley, Texas 76036

The Chair’s designee’s investigation has revealed that the New York State Department of Health, State Board for Professional Medical Conduct (BPMC) has issued Order # 18-051, wherein Dr. Caivano agreed to surrender his license, based on a Texas Medical Board Order that included allegations that he prescribed controlled substances to a family member without medical indication or in-office monitoring.

Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Caivano may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.

Dr. Caivano is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers while his authorization is temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Caivano for services rendered prior to March 26, 2018, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Caivano for services rendered prior to March 26, 2018, should not be denied due to the suspension of his authorization.

This suspension remains in effect until further notice. Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Director’s Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
