Changes to the List of Health Care Providers Authorized to Render Services
to Injured Workers Under the Workers' Compensation Law

Date: September 22, 2010

Workers' Compensation Law §§ 13-b, 13-k, 13-l, and 13-m authorize the Chair of the Workers' Compensation Board to formulate a list of health care providers duly qualified to render services to injured workers. No person or entity shall render care or conduct independent medical examinations under the WCL without such authorization by the Chair. Similarly, WCL §§ 13-d, 13-k, 13-l, 13-m, and 141 authorize the Chair to remove from such authorized list any health care provider who is disqualified from providing services. Such removal may be for a limited period of time (temporary suspension) or may be permanent (revocation).

During the month of August 2010, the following were removed from the list of providers authorized to render services to injured workers.

NAME AUTHORIZATION NUMBER DISPOSITION EFFECTIVE DATE
Kisina, Tatyana 223341-9W Removed 08/09/2010
Leff, Jerome P03415-8W Revoked 08/24/2010

It is important to note that reports submitted by providers who have been removed from the list of those authorized to treat or examine injured workers are valid for treatment or examination prior to the effective date, but are invalid for any treatment rendered or examinations conducted on or after that date.

Any questions regarding the authorized list should be referred to the Office of Health Provider Administration at 1 (800) 781-2362.
