HAMBLEN COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) – A Morristown woman was indicted after being accused of TennCare fraud, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said.
TBI agents began investigating Chelsea Snowden in April after getting a tip from the Division of TennCare’s Office of Program Integrity Unit. Snowden was working as a licensed practical nurse for a health services agency in Morristown.
Officials said they found she falsified timesheets on three different occasions, leading to her employer billing TennCare for services not provided.
TBI said Monday a grand jury returned indictments charging Snowden with three counts of TennCare fraud. She was arrested Tuesday and booked into the Hamblen County Jail on a $15,000 bond.
