Memphis Woman Arrested on Theft Charges That Include TennCare Fraud

A TBI investigation by the Medicaid Fraud Control Division found that Cynthia Abernathy falsified timesheets of a former caregiver between January 2015 and February 2017. Investigators say she never received those services and that the caregiver did not submit those timesheets.
The Shelby County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Abernathy with theft over $60,000, TennCare fraud, and other associated charges. Abernathy was booked into the Shelby County Jail, and was later released.
