A 33-year-old Cocke County woman faces TennCare fraud charges after she used the state’s benefits to obtain controlled substances from multiple doctors.

Terra Keller was arrested earlier this month and charged with two counts of doctor shopping and two counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud.

TennCare fraud is considered a Class E felony and carries a sentence of up to two years in prison per charge, while obtaining a controlled substance by fraud is considered a Class D felony and has a sentence of up to four years in jail per charge.

Anyone who suspects TennCare fraud can report it by calling 1-800-433-3982.
