North GA woman charged with TennCare fraud

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- A North Georgia woman is accused of crossing the state line to commit TennCare fraud. 

Authorities say Alpha Clark lied on her application for TennCare. She said she lived in Tennessee, but had really moved to Chickamauga, Georgia.

Clark is also accused of identity theft, and obtaining a controlled substance by fraud.

For TennCare fraud, Clark could face up to two years in prison for each charge.

In September 2009, Clark was convicted in Georgia of distribution of the painkiller Oxycodone.  She was on probation for that conviction during the time she is alleged to have committed the offenses in Tennessee.
