Former drug addiction clinic owner charged in Williamson County | News


FRANKLIN, TN (WSMV) – A former Williamson County addiction clinic director has been charged with Tenncare fraud, drug fraud and identity theft according to the TBI.

Lindsay Chelette, 38, used the credentials of other doctors at her clinic to write, submit and receive prescriptions for a family member, according to the TBI. Officials say it happened between February 2019 and February 2021 at the Harpeth Recovery Clinic in Spring Hill. The clinic, according to the TBI, was also operating without a proper license.

The TBI also alleges that Chelette handed over claims to Tenncare for a patient who died at the time.

A grand jury indicted Chelette on two counts of TennCare fraud, six counts of prescription drug fraud, six counts of identity theft and six counts of forgery. She is currently being held in Williamson County Jail on $22,500 bond.
