JACKSON, Miss. — A Mississippi woman has been arrested on a charge of insurance fraud.

Attorney General Jim Hood, in a news release Thursday, said 57-year-old Joyce Corley, of Hazlehurst, surrendered Wednesday to deputies at the Madison County Sheriff’s Department following her indictment by a grand jury. Her bond was set at $5,000.

Hood says Corley is accused of presenting an altered Explanation of Benefits form to Southern Administrators and Benefit Consultants, Inc., of Ridgeland, in order to be reimbursed for medical expenses for which she had already received reimbursement.

If convicted, Corley faces up to three years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
