Subject Number 046-1399 Removal of Dr. Emma Lugo

Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations

Authorization No. 152081

April 22, 2021

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Sections 13-d and 13-d(2)(a), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to remove Dr. Emma Lugo's authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers' compensation system effective April 13, 2021. Dr. Lugo's last known business address is:

8018 Westminster Abbey Boulevard
Orlando, Florida 32835

The Chair's designee's investigation has revealed that, by Modification Order (BPMC #21-065), effective March 31, 2021, Dr. Lugo agreed to surrender her license as a physician and is precluded from practicing medicine in New York State.

Dr. Lugo 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. Lugo for services rendered prior to April 13, 2021, are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Lugo for services rendered prior to April 13, 2021, should not be denied due to the removal of her 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
