Removal of Dr. Arun S. Kalyan-Masih

Authorization No. 145462-8W

Date: July 21, 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. Arun S. Kalyan-Masih's authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers' compensation system effective July 15, 2020. Dr. Kalyan-Masih's last known business addresses are:

5 Train Band Road
Bedford, New York 10506

2700 Westchester Avenue, 2nd Floor
Purchase, New York 10577

and

3030 Westchester Avenue
Purchase, New York 10577

The Chair's designee's investigation has revealed that, by Consent Order (BPMC) #20-160, effective July 6, 2020, Dr. Kalyan-Masih agreed to a limitation precluding registration or issuance of any further medical license and was precluded from practicing medicine in New York State for failure to provide appropriate care and treatment to multiple patients between December 2015 and January 2016.

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

Dr. Kalyan-Masih 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. Kalyan-Masih for services rendered prior to July 15, 2020, are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Kalyan-Masih for services rendered prior to July 15, 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.
