Hamilton County Man Charged With TennCare

Nashville (WDEF) The Office of Inspector General announces the arrest of a Soddy Daisy man for TennCare fraud.

22-year old Casey w. Millsaps faces eight counts of fraud involving doctor shopping.

He was indicted in Rhea County on two counts of fraudulently getting the painkillers Hydrocodone and Oxycodone.

Doctor shopping is the practice of going to multiple physicians in a short period of time into order to get multiple prescriptions. 

“Tennessee is at the top of the list of states with high prescription drug use, and pain relievers are a huge part of that in this state,” Inspector General Manny Tyndall said. “While many people are legitimately using these drugs, we’re committed to eliminating the incidence of people fraudulently obtaining drugs and letting TennCare pick up the tab.”
