BOSTON – A Natick psychiatrist was arrested today in connection with charges that he billed Medicare and private insurance companies for over $10 million in treatments he did not provide and then obstructed justice in an attempt to conceal his crimes.
Gustavo Kinrys, 49, of Wellesley, was indicted on seven counts of wire fraud, six counts of false statements relating to health care matters, one count of falsification of documents and one count of obstructing a criminal health care investigation.
Kinrys was arrested today, December 10, and will appear via videoconference in federal court in Boston this afternoon.
“Fraud in the Medicare system is a persistent, long-term problem,” said United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling. “Physicians who defraud the system are taking dollars that could otherwise be used to support patient health. We will continue to prioritize these cases.”
