Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations
Authorization No. PT028456-2W
August 9, 2022
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 Physical Therapist (PT) Chris Capilli's authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers' compensation system effective August 9, 2022. PT Capilli's last known business address is:
Guthrie Medical Group
3344 Chambers Road, Suite 200
Horseheads, New York 14845
The Chair's designee's investigation revealed that despite being served with a Notice to Produce, PT Capilli has failed to produce the requested documents. As a result of the foregoing, the Chair believes that PT Capilli may be guilty of misconduct under WCL §13-d(2)(f) for the refusal to produce "any relevant book or paper concerning his or her conduct under any authorization granted to him or her under this chapter."
PT Capilli 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), while his authorization is temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by PT Capilli for services rendered prior to August 9, 2022, are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine PT Capilli for services rendered prior to August 9, 2022, should not be denied due to the suspension of his 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.
