A Wilson County man is charged with TennCare fraud for the second time in less than a month.
The Office of Inspector General (OIG) announced this week the arrest of Randall Wayne Bowers, 58, of Mt. Juliet.
An Anderson County grand jury charged Bowers, alleging that he falsely reported to the state that his child, a minor, was living with him as a dependent, in order to obtain TennCare benefits.
Bowers was arrested last month in Wilson County on the same charges.
"We are committed to preserving TennCare for people who need and are eligible for the program," Inspector General Manny Tyndall said. "We continually strive to safeguard taxpayer funds by investigating and prosecuting people who illegally receive TennCare benefits."
Theft of services over $1,000 but less than $10,000 is a Class D felony punishable by up to four years in prison. District Attorney General David S. Clark is prosecuting.
