Wilmington woman indicted on insurance fraud charges


A Wilmington woman was indicted by the New Castle County Grand Jury for insurance fraud and other felony charges.

Theresa T. Milton, 44, was indicted on seven felony counts of insurance fraud, one felony count of theft by false pretense, and one count of falsifying business records.

An investigation by the Delaware Department of Insurance Fraud Prevention Bureau indicated that in May through September 2017, Milton submitted false claims for emergency medical services to Highmark BCBS of Delaware totaling slightly more than $16,000.

Highmark became suspicious of one of the claims and made an inquiry to the ambulance service.

It was discovered that the claims appeared to be false, and the case was referred to the Department of Insurance Fraud Prevention Bureau for investigation.

Anyone suspecting insurance fraud, can report it by calling 302-674-7350, or email to fraud@delaware.gov.
