Chattanooga woman charged with TennCare fraud

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- A Chattanooga woman could face up to six years in prison for TennCare fraud.

A release from the Office of Inspector General says Detrice Ann Moon is accused of forging a prescription for painkillers, and using the State-managed insurance to pay for it.

In addition to a possible two-year prison sentence for the alleged fraud, 42-year-old Moon could face up to an additional six years for attempting it.

Since 2005, Tennessee authorities have charged nearly 1,500 people with TennCare fraud and saved the program more than $173-million.
