Subject Number 046-1569 Reinstatement of Dr. Michael J. Angel

Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations

Authorization No. 245467-6W

November 29, 2022

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(4), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board ("Chair") had exercised her authority to temporarily suspend Dr. Michael J. Angel's authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers' compensation system effective October 27, 2022 (Subject Number 046-1562).

The temporary suspension was based on the Chair's designee's investigation, which revealed that, despite multiple written requests, Dr. Angel had failed and refused to provide the Board with proof of reimbursement of the sum of $353.84 to an injured worker's private health insurer, which sum having also been paid to Dr. Angel by the workers' compensation insurer for the same treatment.

Upon receipt of proof of reimbursement, the Chair has rescinded the temporary suspension of Dr. Angel and has reinstated his authority to treat injured workers effective November 29, 2022. The Medical Director's Office will restore Dr. Angel to the list of providers authorized to treat injured workers as of November 29, 2022.

Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Director's Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
