BG Woman Arrested for Insurance Fraud

A Bowling Green woman is charged with claiming to live in Tennessee in order to get health care benefits from Tenn-Care - the state’s public health insurance program.

The Office of Inspector General said 46-year-old Nancy Sue Dixon was arrested on June 12, 2007, at her residence. She’s accused of receiving over $4,000 in Tenn-Care benefits.

Dixon is charged with falsely claiming to be a resident of Cheatham County, Tenn.

Inspector General Deborah Faulkner said they will prosecute anyone found misrepresenting their income, address or employment to gain Tenn-Care benefits.

If convicted, Dixon could be sentenced up to two years in prison.
