Knoxville (WVLT) -- Two East Tennesseans have been charged with TennCare fraud.

According to the Office of the Inspector General in Nashville, Donna Renee Roberts, 36, of Sunbright and Pamela Dailey, 36, of Cookeville were both charged.

Roberts is accused of one count of illegally receiving more than $10,000 work of TennCare and four counts of food stamp fraud.

Both are Felonies.

She is also charged with failing to report her accurate income to the state, which would have made her ineligible for both programs.

Roberts could receive up to six years on the charges.

Dailey is accused of making false statements about her marital status and not disclosing her husbands income so she would appear eligible for TennCare.

She allegedly received more than $16,000 in medical benefits from the program that she was not entitled to.

She faces a sentence of up to two years.

There have been more than 500 people arrested for TennCare fraud since 2005.
