Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations
Authorization No. PA011532-9W
January 3, 2021
Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(2), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to remove Nathaniel Brochu's authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers' compensation system effective January 3, 2022. Mr. Brochu's last known business addresses are:
1360 North Forrest Road, Suite 115
Williamsville, New York 14221
Integrative Pain and Wellness
765 Jefferson Road, Suite 100
Rochester, New York 14623
The Chair's designee's investigation has revealed that Mr. Brochu engaged in a pattern of overbilling for medical services rendered to injured workers, knowingly making false statements or representations as to material facts in medical reports and engaging in professional misconduct in connection with rendering medical services, all of which constitute grounds for removing him from the list of providers authorized to treat injured workers pursuant to WCL §§ 13-d(2)(a), (c) and (d).
Mr. Brochu 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 Mr. Brochu for services rendered prior to January 3, 2022, are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Mr. Brochu for services rendered prior to January 3, 2022, 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.
