Following an investigation into alleged altered medical documents, troopers assigned to the Louisiana State Police Insurance Fraud Unit arrested Hollis Kagler, 43, and charged her with one count of insurance fraud.
According to State Police, the investigation stemmed from a complaint made by the National Teachers Associates Life Insurance Company (NTALIC) alleging that Kagler had submitted fraudulent medical invoices to support an injury claim. NTALIC specializes in offering supplemental health and life insurance programs to employees of the educational community, government agencies, and private businesses throughout the United States.(WCxKit)
May of 2010, Kagler claimed to have injured her back while moving furniture and submitted a hospital bill in the amount of $57,462 to Teachers for reimbursement. After Teachers questioned the validity of the bill, Kagler resubmitted an altered medical invoice to show that she had been admitted to the hospital.
The investigation concluded that Kagler intentionally attempted to defraud Teachers by submitting the fraudulent medical invoices.
In late June, troopers arrested Kagler at her Franklinton residence and booked her into the Washington Parish Jail without incident.(WCxKit)
