Sullivan County woman charged with TennCare fraud

Amelia G. Dugger

A Sullivan County woman is charged with selling prescription drugs obtained through benefits under the TennCare state healthcare insurance plan, the Office of the Inspector General said in a press release.

Amelia G. Dugger, 47, Kingsport, was arrested after an investigation by the Kingsport Police Department.

Dugger is accused of using TennCare benefits to obtain a controlled substance and then selling some of the drugs. A narcotics-based search warrant was executed at her home, and officials later learned that TennCare was used to obtain the drugs. 

If convicted, Dugger could receive a two-year sentence.
