Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations
Authorization No. N533471-9W
September 28, 2020
Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(4), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to temporarily suspend Kristin Kent Parmeter’s authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers’ compensation system effective August 14, 2020. Ms. Parmeter's last known business address is:
5719 Wide Waters Parkway
Syracuse, New York 13214
The Chair’s designee’s investigation has revealed that the New York State Education Department, Office of Professional Discipline, has issued Consent Order #31704, wherein Ms. Parmeter did not contest the specification of professional misconduct, including that between October 17, 2016, and November 8, 2016, she failed to adequately document patient condition assessments. This resulted in a two-year stayed suspension, a two-year probationary period, and a $500 fine.
Therefore, the Chair believes that Ms. Parmeter may be guilty of misconduct as described in Education Law §6509(9) and 8 NYCRR 29.2(a)(3), and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.
Ms. Parmeter is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers, or from conducting reviews of records regarding variance requests pursuant to 12 NYCRR § 324.3(b)(2)(ii)(a), while her authorization is temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Ms. Parmeter for services rendered prior to August 14, 2020, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Ms. Parmeter for services rendered prior to August 14, 2020, should not be denied due to the suspension of her authorization.
This suspension remains in effect until further notice. Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Director’s Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
