Eau Claire woman charged with prescription drug ID theft

The Leader-Telegram reports:

A 38-year-old Eau Claire woman is accused of using a false identity to obtain prescription drugs.

Molly B. Tiry, 5726 Otter Creek Court, Unit 7, has been charged in Eau Claire County Court with identity theft for financial gain and attempted possession of narcotic drugs, both felonies, and a misdemeanor count of obtaining a prescription drug with fraud.

Okay, but if you read more on the Leader-Telegram, it sounds like she said she just fabricated a name and date of birth to get services. So how is that identity theft?  I don’t quite understand that charge.
