Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations

Authorization No. 249241-1W

October 12, 2021

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(4), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board ("Chair") had exercised her authority to temporarily suspend Dr. Michael Patrick Nett's authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers' compensation system effective May 15, 2021 (Subject Number 046-1407).

The temporary suspension was based on the Chair's designee's investigation, which revealed that Dr. Nett had failed and refused to answer, upon request of the Chair's Designee, questions concerning his conduct regarding the treatment of injured workers.

Upon receipt of an appropriate response to the aforementioned questions, the Chair has rescinded the temporary suspension of Dr. Nett and has reinstated his authority to treat injured workers effective October 12, 2021. The Medical Director's Office shall restore Dr. Nett to the list of providers authorized to treat injured workers effective October 12, 2021.

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