Morgan County (WVLT) - A Morgan County woman is facing charges after investigators say she fraudulently obtained TennCare by altering a prescription.
Investigators with the Officer of the Inspector General say Heather Davis, 20, or Oliver Springs obtained a prescription for the painkiller Oxycodone that was not prescribed to her and used TennCare to pay for it.
The felony charge carries a sentence of up to two years on prison, if convicted.
While announcing the arrest, the Office also said October has been a record breaking month.
Since they began full operations in February 2005, they've arrested over 560 people on charges of TennCare fraud.
Inspector General Deborah Faulkner said this shows we're winning the war against TennCare fraud.
