A Dickson County man was arrested last week after allegedly selling prescription pain killers paid for by TennCare. Tennessee’s Office of the Inspector General announced that 34-year-old Brandon D. Bissinger of Dickson turned himself in at the Dickson County Sheriff’s Office after being charged with one count of TennCare fraud and two counts of sale of a schedule III controlled substance. He is accused of obtaining the pain killer Hydrocodone using TennCare benefits while planning to sell a portion of the drugs. The charges are a result of a join investigation by the Inspector General’s office and the 23rd Judicial District Drug Task Force. TennCare fraud is a Class E felony with a possible sentence of up to two years in prison. The sale of a schedule III controlled substance is a Class D felony punishable by 2-4 years in prison on each count. Responsible for investigating TennCare fraud, the Office of the Inspector General has charged more than 1,700 people with criminal counts since its creation in 2005, resulting in over $3.5 million in restitution being recovered for the state-funded insurance program.
