Psychiatrist Convicted for Services Not Provided


Psychiatrist Gustavo Kinrys, who owned and operated Advanced TMS Associates, was convicted of billing Medicare and private insurance companies for over $11 million in treatments he did not provide and obstructing justice in an attempt to conceal his crimes. On 382 occasions, Kinrys billed Medicare and private insurers for having provided more than 24 hours’ worth of psychotherapy services in a single day, including one day in July 2017 when he claimed he had provided hour-long psychotherapy sessions to 70 different patients – all while outside the United States on vacation.
