Missouri psychiatrist heading to jail

Compliance Monitor, April 16, 2008

Ajit Trikha will spend 30 months in prison after pleading guilty to defrauding Medicare and Medicaid, according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) press release.

Trikha, a psychiatrist, was also sentenced to two years supervised release, and ordered to pay more than $1.7 million in restitution.

From 2000 to 2005, Trikha and his company TRX Health Systems billed Medicare and Medicaid for individual psychotherapy services, group psychotherapy, and pharmacologic management that he did not provide, according to the DOJ.
