Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations
Authorization No. 278565-7W
January 18, 2023
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. Sean P. Boyle's authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers' compensation system effective December 10, 2022 (Subject Number 046-1575).
The temporary suspension was based on the Chair's designee's investigation, which revealed that, despite multiple written requests, Dr. Boyle had failed and refused to provide the Board with proof of reimbursement of the sum of $1,014.14 to an injured worker's private health insurer, which sum having also been paid to Dr. Boyle by the workers' compensation carrier for the same treatment.
Upon receipt of proof of reimbursement, the Chair has rescinded the temporary suspension of Dr. Boyle and has reinstated his authority to treat injured workers effective January 18, 2023. The Medical Director's Office will restore Dr. Boyle to the list of providers authorized to treat injured workers as of January 18, 2023.
Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Director's Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
