An investigation by special agents with the TBI’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit has resulted in the arrest of a Livingston physical therapist on forgery charges. At the request of 13th District Attorney General Bryant Dunaway, agents began investigating 30-year-old Dustin Chase Rich on allegations of TennCare fraud. At that time, Rich was employed by a Clay County hospital as a physical therapist. During the course of the investigation, agents developed information that Rich created false documents and forged the signatures of the patient and/or guardian, which resulted in TennCare being fraudulently billed for those services. The investigation revealed that from January to May 2017, Rich fabricated summary notes of therapy visits he did not complete, and forged the signatures, from his personal residence in Overton County. Rich is no longer employed by the hospital. Earlier this week, an Overton County grand jury returned indictments charging Rich with four counts of forgery. Yesterday (Friday, May 25, 2018), agents arrested Rich. He was booked into the Overton County Jail and released on his own recognizance.
