Authorization No. 157770-9W

February 20, 2018

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. Howard Zvei Arian’s authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers’ compensation system effective February 16, 2018. Dr. Arian's last known business address is:

101 Oak Park Pl
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15243-1145

The revocation is based upon Determination and Order (BPMC No. 18-026), issued by the New York State Department of Health, State Board for Professional Medical Conduct (BPMC), effective February 12, 2018, wherein Dr. Arian’s license to practice medicine in New York was revoked, based on a finding by the Hearing Committee that the evidence supported sustaining the charge of having committed misconduct as defined in Educ. Law § 6530(9)(d).

Dr. Arian is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers. Reports submitted by Dr. Arian for services rendered prior to February 16, 2018 are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Arian for services rendered prior to February 16, 2018 should not be denied due to the revocation of his authorization.

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