Connecticut psychiatrist fined for submitting false insurance claims

April 18, 2018

The Connecticut Medical Examining Board fined psychiatrist Naimetulla Syed $15,000 for submitting false insurance claims. The medical board also placed Syed’s medical license on probation for a year in connection with the false claims. Syed, who also has an office in Glastonbury, must complete courses in medical documentation.

In 2016, Syed paid $422,641 to resolve allegations that he submitted false claims to Medicare and Medicaid between 2009 and 2013.  An investigation revealed that he used a code for psychotherapy sessions lasting 45 to 50 minutes when in most cases, he only saw the patients for five to 30 minutes.

In 2013, Syed had been fined $5,000 by the board for similar allegations that he billed insurance in 2010 for patient visits that never occurred, state records show.
