Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations
Authorization No. 111398-4B
September 22, 2014
Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Sections 13-d(4) and 13-d(2)(f), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised his authority to temporarily suspend Dr. Jimmy Limís authorizations to treat injured workers and to perform independent medical examinations in the New York State workersí compensation system effective September 19, 2014. Dr. Limís last known business address is 365 Broadway, Suite 1, Amityville, New York 11701.
The Chairís designeeís investigation revealed that Dr. Lim failed to respond to the Boardís interrogatories served on him on or about August 21, 2014 concerning his conduct under his Board authorizations. Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Lim may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.
Dr. Lim is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers and from performing independent medical examinations while his authorizations are temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Lim for services rendered prior to September 19, 2014, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Lim for services rendered prior to September 19, 2014 should not be denied due to the suspension of his authorizations.
This suspension remains in effect until further notice. Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Directorís Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
