NASHVILLE – Special Agents in the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit have obtained indictments for a woman accused of mistreating a Davidson County TennCare recipient in her care.
After receiving information from the Department of Human Services’ Adult Protective Services unit, TBI Special Agents began investigating Brandie Lynn Carver on January 22nd. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that Carver, while working as a homemaker for Blossom Health Services from 2012 to 2014, mistreated a TennCare recipient in her care, which included misuse of his ATM card, theft of his cell phone, and reporting she was caring for him during several scheduled shifts when further investigation revealed she was not. The company subsequently terminated Carver’s employment.
On September 22nd, the Davidson County Grand Jury returned indictments for Carver, charging the 32-year-old with one count of TennCare Fraud, one count of Identity Theft, one count of Theft above $1,000, one count of Abuse of an Impaired Adult, and one count of Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card. Today, with the assistance of the Gallatin Police Department, TBI Agents arrested Carver and booked her into the Sumner County Jail on an unrelated probation violation.
