Fraudulent medical claims
A McPherson County nurse who recently pleaded guilty to six counts of insurance fraud has been ordered to repay nearly $80,000 in restitution to Aflac. The Kansas Insurance Department said Jennifer Batson filed fraudulent claims with Aflac by using forged medical records and billing documents. Regulators said she allegedly filed claims for a variety of fictitious injuries and health conditions that she said happened to herself and her husband.
