Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations
Authorization No. C10871-4B
September 1, 2015
Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(4), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised his authority to temporarily suspend Dr. Rashad Reneh Trabulsiís authorizations to treat injured workers and to perform independent medical examinations in the New York State workersí compensation system effective August 27, 2015. Dr. Trabulsi's last known business address is 123 Hicks Street, Brooklyn, New York 11201.
The Chairís designeeís investigation revealed that the New York State Education Department, Office of Professional Discipline, has issued Order # 27662, wherein Dr. Trabulsi admitted guilt to the charge of professional misconduct for Offering a False Instrument for Filing in the First Degree, a class E felony, for knowingly submitting a Medicaid application containing a false statement and false information, resulting in a three (3) month actual suspension, and a twenty-one (21) month stayed suspension of his license, stayed with a two (2) year probationary period, during which he may not practice for the first three (3) months.
Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Trabulsi may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.
Dr. Trabulsi 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. Trabulsi for services rendered prior to August 27, 2015, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Trabulsi for services rendered prior to August 27, 2015, 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.
