Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations
Authorization No. 200458-8W
November 20, 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. Michael L. Randallís authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workersí compensation system effective November 12, 2015. Dr. Randall's last known business address is 2539 Middle Country Road, Centereach, New York 11720.
Investigation has revealed that Dr. Randall entered a plea of guilty in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York to count twelve (12) of a twenty-four (24) count indictment for knowingly and intentionally distributing a controlled substance in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 841(a)(1) and 841(b)(1)(c); Title 18, United States Code, Sections 2 and 3551 et seq.
Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Randall may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.
Dr. Randall is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers while his authorization is temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Randall for services rendered prior to November 12, 2015, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Randall for services rendered prior to November 12, 2015, 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 Directorís Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
