Vicki Brown Of Giles County Charged With TennCare Fraud

NASHVILLE, TN – A Giles County woman is charged with TennCare fraud for selling prescription drugs paid for by TennCare. 

The Office of Inspector General (OIG), with assistance from the Pulaski Police Department and the Giles County Sheriff’s Office, today announced the arrest of Vicki Brown, 34, of Pulaski.  

Brown is accused in a Giles County indictment of selling the painkiller Hydrocodone which was obtained by using TennCare healthcare insurance benefits.  

The TennCare fraud charge against Brown could result in a two year sentence, if convicted. District Attorney General Mike Bottoms is prosecuting. 

The OIG, which is separate from TennCare, began full operation in February 2005 and has investigated cases leading to over $3.5 million paid in restitution and recoupment to TennCare, with a total estimated cost avoidance of over $173 million for the TennCare program, according to latest figures.  To date, over 1,900 people have been charged with TennCare fraud. 

Through the OIG Cash for Tips Program established by the Legislature, Tennesseans can get cash rewards for TennCare fraud tips that lead to convictions.  Anyone can report suspected TennCare fraud by calling 1-800-433-3982 toll-free from anywhere in Tennessee, or log on to www.tn.gov/tnoig and follow the prompts that read "Report TennCare Fraud."
