A Tipton County woman has been charged in nearby Dyer County for TennCare fraud involving doctor shopping, or going to multiple doctors to obtain controlled substances and using the state’s Medicaid program as payment. 

The Office of Inspector General, with assistance from the Dyer County Sheriff’s Office, last week announced the arrest of Kristy Morrow Valley, also known as Kristy Morrow Roberts, 32, of Drummonds.  

She is charged with fraudulently using TennCare to obtain controlled substances by doctor shopping for the painkiller Hydrocodone.  TennCare paid for both the office visits and for the controlled substance.

TennCare fraud is a Class E felony carrying a sentence of up to two years per charge in prison.   

To date, over 2,000 people have been charged with TennCare fraud.

Anyone can report suspected TennCare fraud by calling 1-800-433-3982, or by logging on to www.tn.gov/tnoig.
