Subject No. 046-1102

Temporary Suspension of Dr. Jeffrey A. Spina

Authorization No. C04509-8B

Date: September 19, 2018

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Sections 13-d(4) and 13-l(12), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to temporarily suspend Dr. Jeffrey A. Spina’s authorizations to treat injured workers and to perform independent medical examinations in the New York State workers’ compensation system effective September 17, 2018. Dr. Spina's last known business addresses are:

52 Dolson Avenue, Suite 200
Middletown, New York 10940

and

201 Dolson Avenue, Suite G
Middletown, New York 10940

The Chair’s designee’s investigation revealed that Dr. Spina was charged in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York, with one count of conspiring to commit health care fraud, one count of health care fraud, and one count of obstructing and impeding a federal audit.

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

Dr. Spina is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers and from performing independent medical examinations while his authorizations are temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Spina for services rendered prior to September 17, 2018, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Spina for services rendered prior to September 17, 2018, should not be denied due to the suspension of his authorizations.

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.
