What is an OPMC Administrative Warning?

An administrative warning is a “non-public” matter. It is non-disciplinary. This means that:

  • It is not reported to the National Practictioner’s Data Bank.
  • It is not posted on the New York State Department of Health’s Physicians’ Profiles website.
  • It is not reported to hospitals where the physician has admitting privileges.
  • It is not reported to insurance companies or HMOs in which the physician is a participating provider.
  • A physician may affirm under oath that s/he has never been disciplined.
  • The Board will confirm to anyone who inquires that the physician has not been disciplined.
