Udaya Shetty, a psychiatrist in Virginia, was sentenced to over two years in prison and has agreed to pay over $1 million to the United States and the Commonwealth of Virginia to resolve allegations of submitting false claims to Medicare, Medicaid, and TRICARE.  Shetty was accused of billing for services that average about 40-60 minutes long, despite quadruple booking patients and only seeing them for about 5-10 minutes each.  The scheme began at his own practice, Behavioral & Neuropsychiatric Group, in 2013, and continued at a new practice, Quietly Radiant Psychiatric Services, in 2017.  As a result of his actions, government health programs were defrauded of more than $450,000.  USAO EDVA
