Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations
August 11, 2021
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 Dr. Lisa Nason's authorizations to treat injured workers and perform independent medical examinations within the New York State workers' compensation system effective August 10, 2021. Dr. Nason's last known business addresses are:
Mt. Sinai Doctors
2422 Central Park Avenue
Yonkers, New York 10710
808 Allerton Avenue
Bronx, New York 10467
Statewide Medical, P.C.
421 Ocean Parkway
Brooklyn, New York 11218
The Board has received numerous complaints from injured workers alleging misconduct by Dr. Nason. Upon investigation, the Chair's designee believes that Dr. Nason may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect injured workers. Accordingly, Dr. Nason's authorizations shall be temporarily suspended pending the results of the Chair's designee's full investigation.
Dr. Nason is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers, from performing independent medical examinations, and from conducting reviews of records regarding variance requests pursuant to 12 NYCRR § 324.3(b)(2)(ii)(a), while her authorizations are temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Nason for services rendered prior to August 10, 2021, are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Nason for services rendered prior to August 10, 2021, should not be denied due to the suspension of her authorizations.
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.
