March 15, 2012|By Lorraine Mirabella, The Baltimore Sun

A 35-year-old Parkville woman has been charged with three counts of insurance fraud stemming from allegations that she filed three fraudulent claims and was paid a total of $21,563, the office of the Maryland attorney general said Thursday.

Charges were filed against Katina Hutchinson, Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler said. An arraignment is set for April 27 in Baltimore Circuit Court.

The state accuses Hutchinson of filing fraudulent claims as well as fraudulent supporting documents on her supplemental health policy with American Family Life Assurance Co. last year between July 15 and Aug. 17.

AFLAC issued three separate checks for a total of $21,563, the state said. A fraudulent claim with a value of $300 or more is a felony, the attorney general's office said.
