Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations
Authorization No. 243363-9W
March 29, 2019
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. Alexandru Burducea’s name from the list of physicians authorized to treat injured workers in the New York State workers’ compensation system effective February 22, 2019. Dr. Burducea's last known business addresses are:
300 Arleigh Road
Douglaston, New York 11363, and
Rehabilitation Medicine Center of NY
80 Maiden Lane #604
New York, New York 10038
On or about February 14, 2019, Dr. Burducea pled guilty in Federal District Court for the Southern District of New York to conspiracy to violate the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute. Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Burducea may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.
As stated in Subject Number 046-1051, Dr. Burducea’s authorization to treat injured workers had been temporarily suspended effective April 2, 2018. Dr. Burducea 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. Burducea for services rendered prior to April 2, 2018 are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Burducea for services rendered prior to April 2, 2018 should not be denied due to the removal of his name form the list of physicians authorized to treat injured workers.
Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Director’s Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
