Subject Number 046-1321Removal of Dr. Rulx Dupiton

Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations

Authorization No. 133847-4W

August 18, 2020

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(2)(a), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to remove Dr. Rulx Dupiton’s authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers’ compensation system effective August 6, 2020. Dr. Dupiton's last known business address is:

2370 Camp Avenue
Merrick, New York 11566

The Chair’s designee’s investigation has revealed that by Consent Order BPMC #20-185, effective July 31, 2020, in full satisfaction of the charges against him, Dr. Dupiton agreed that he could not successfully defend against at least one of the acts of misconduct alleged, including that he failed to provide appropriate medical care and treatment to a patient. This resulted in his preclusion from practicing medicine in New York State.

Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Dupiton may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.

Dr. Dupiton is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers, and from conducting reviews of records regarding variance requests pursuant to 12 NYCRR § 324.3(b)(2)(ii)(a). Reports submitted by Dr. Dupiton for services rendered prior to August 6, 2020, are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Dupiton for services rendered prior to August 6, 2020, should not be denied due to the removal of his authorization.

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

Clarissa M. Rodriguez
Chair
