McPherson nurse to repay $80k for insurance fraud
A McPherson County nurse who pleaded guilty to six counts of insurance fraud will repay nearly $80,000 in restitution to an insurance company for fraudulent claims which she supported by forged medical treatment records and billing documents.
Jennifer Renee Allmon, now known as Jennifer Batson, was ordered to repay $79,945 to Aflac for claims she filed with the company for a variety of fictitious injuries and health conditions she said happened to herself and her husband.
Following a report of suspected fraud by Aflac and additional investigation by the Anti-Fraud Division of the Kansas Insurance Department (KID), the case was turned over to the McPherson County Attorney's Office for prosecution. The McPherson Police Department was also involved in the investigation.
Allmon, after a plea agreement, was granted probation for 24 months, with an underlying prison sentence of 20 months, and ordered to pay the restitution.
The KID Anti-Fraud Division is responsible for investigating insurance fraud in Kansas and educating Kansas consumers about protecting themselves from illegal activity. Those who suspect fraudulent insurance activities can call (800) 432-2484.
