A central Alberta woman charged with defrauding Alberta's health benefits provider of more than $119,000 over three years is to stand trial.
Noralyn Zadrozny waived a preliminary hearing when she appeared in a Red Deer court last week, but no trial date has been set.

Zadrozny, who is 45, was charged after Alberta Blue Cross discovered fraudulent claims during an audit of employee coverage at a hog-slaughtering plant.

RCMP investigated and found that more than 100 Olymel workers were encouraged to sign blank claim forms, which were submitted with false receipts.

Investigators allege Zadrozny and co-accused Donna Nast received a significant percentage of each claim payout.

Examination of hundreds of files between January 2007 and January 2010 showed that most of the false claims were for massages.

Nast's case is to return to Red Deer court next month.
