Subject Number 046-997 Revocation of Dr. Okon Umana

Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations

Authorization No. 153743-0W

October 30, 2017

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(5), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to revoke Dr. Okon Umana’s authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers’ compensation system effective October 26, 2017. Dr. Umana's last known business addresses are:

2955 Webster Avenue
Bronx, New York 10458

2100 Bartow Avenue
Bronx, New York 10475

The revocation is based upon Consent Order (BPMC No. 16-015), issued by the New York State Department of Health, State Board for Professional Medical Conduct (BPMC), effective January 29, 2016, and based on Dr. Umana’s continued treatment of injured workers during the pendency of his temporary suspension.

Dr. Umana had his authorization to treat injured workers temporarily suspended by the Board on November 20, 2012.

Dr. Umana is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers. Reports submitted by Dr. Umana for services rendered prior to November 20, 2012 are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Umana for services rendered prior to November 20, 2012 should not be denied due to the temporary suspension and subsequent revocation 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
