The Washington State Patrol has arrested an Everett woman suspected of using another woman's identity to get medical care and prescription drugs.

The 48-year-old woman was booked into the Snohomish County Jail just before 12:30 p.m. Tuesday for investigation of seven counts of first-degree theft, two counts of second-degree theft, six counts of forgery, first-degree identity theft and drug violations.

The victim was a Medicaid client of the state Department of Social and Health Services. In late 2007, a health plan that contracts with DSHS spotted what appeared to be a duplicate billing and notified the agency.
