Tennessee governor signs TennCare anti-fraud bill

The Tennessean, June 13, 2008
Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen has signed a bill that makes lying or willfully withholding evidence in connection with an investigation of TennCare fraud a felony in the state. State leaders hope the bill will aid the TennCare Provider Fraud Task Force, which has recovered more than $7.7 million in about 10 healthcare provider fraud cases since January 2007.
