JACKSON – An investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit has resulted in the indictment of a Parsons couple on charges of insurance fraud.
In March 2013, Special Agents with the TBI’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit begin investigating the Family Clinic on Tennessee Avenue in Parsons on a complaint of TennCare fraud. That investigation resulted in clinic CEO James Inman and his wife Kimberly Inman, who is a nurse practitioner at the facility, being indicted on charges of TennCare fraud, along with another clinic employee. While investigating that initial complaint, on January 22, 2014, Agents were requested by the Bureau of TennCare Program Integrity Unit to further investigate the clinic on complaints of insurance fraud. During the course of that investigation, Agents developed information that from 2011 through 2014, the Inmans submitted an application using false income amounts to obtain insurance for their children through the Tennessee CoverKids program, for which they were not qualified.
On Tuesday, the Decatur County Grand Jury returned indictments against Kimberly Inman, 34, and James Inman, 36, charging each with two counts of Insurance Fraud and two counts of Conspiracy to Commit Insurance Fraud. Kimberly and James Inman turned themselves in Tuesday to be booked at the Decatur County Sheriff’s Office, and were released on their own recognizance.
