Albany, NY ( - New york Workers' Compensation Law §§ 13-b, 13-k, 13-l, and 13-m authorize the Chair of the Workers' Compensation Board to formulate a list of health care providers duly qualified to render services to injured workers. No person or entity shall render care or conduct independent medical examinations under the WCL without such authorization by the Chair. Similarly, WCL §§ 13-d, 13-k, 13-l, 13-m, and 141 authorize the Chair to remove from such authorized list any health care provider who is disqualified from providing services. Such removal may be for a limited period of time (temporary suspension) or may be permanent (revocation).
