ATLANTA – Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King announced today that Kesha Petty, 42, of Atlanta, has been charged with 20 counts of insurance fraud.

Between November 2016 and March 2020, Ms. Petty submitted 20 fraudulent prescription claims to Aetna Insurance so she could receive a reimbursement from her employer. In total, Ms. Petty received over $228,000 from the fraudulent claims, with some individual payments reaching as high as $30,000.

“Upon investigation, our agents discovered that Ms. Petty’s prescription claims did not match Walgreens’ records,” said Commissioner King. “Further, one record had a clearly visible watermark from a document editing program. I am extremely proud of our special agents for bringing an end to this costly case.”

Warrants were taken out against Ms. Petty on January 12th in Gwinnett County. She is still wanted at this time.
