Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations
Authorization No. 164034
July 15, 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. Gregory Molden’s authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers’ compensation system effective June 14, 2019. Dr. Molden's last known business address is:
2300 S. Galvez Street
New Orleans, Louisiana 70125
Investigation has revealed that the New York State Department of Health, State Board for Professional Medical Conduct (BPMC) has issued Determination and Order #19-130, wherein Dr. Molden’s license to practice medicine in New York State was revoked based on his conviction of thirteen counts of federal felonies, including Conspiracy to Commit Health Care Fraud in violation of 18 USC §1349, Conspiracy to Pay and Receive Illegal Health Care Kickbacks in violation of 18 USC §371, and Health Care Fraud in violation of 18 USC §§1347 and 2.
Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Molden may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.
Dr. Molden 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. Molden for services rendered prior to June 14, 2019, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Molden for services rendered prior to June 14, 2019, 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.
