Subject No. 046-1271

Removal of Dr. Paul Hannan

Authorization No. 250782-0W

Date: March 2, 2020

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(2)(a), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to remove Dr. Paul Hannan’s authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers’ compensation system effective March 2, 2020. Dr. Hannan's last known business addresses are:

6619 Wallaston Court
Brooklyn, New York 11204

and

24 Bradley Avenue
Staten Island, New York 10314

The removal is based upon Surrender Order (BPMC No. 20-034), issued by the New York State Department of Health, State Board for Professional Medical Conduct (BPMC), effective March 2, 2020. Wherein Dr. Hannan agreed to surrender his license to practice medicine in New York State on the grounds that he agreed not to contest the allegations in full satisfaction of the charges against him, including that he engaged in unprofessional and dangerous prescribing practices in his treatment of multiple patients and engaged in the use, distribution, or issuance of a prescription for a dangerous or narcotic drug, other than for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes, and engaged in a pattern of negligence in the practice of medicine.

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

Dr. Hannan is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers, and from conducting reviews of records regarding variance requests pursuant to 12 NYCRR § 324.3(b)(2)(ii)(a). Reports submitted by Dr. Hannan for services rendered prior to March 2, 2020, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Hannan for services rendered prior to March 2, 2020, should not be denied due to the removal of his authorization.

Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Director’s Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
