Mississippi Woman Charged in Medicare Fraud Bought 20 Cars

JACKSON, Miss. — Newly released court records claim the owner of a Mississippi hospice ran a multimillion Medicare fraud and used some of the money to buy 20 cars since December 2009.

The details about Angelic Hospice in Greenwood and its owner’s purchases were outlined in a 27-page document dated Feb. 19 but only made public Oct. 3 in U.S. District Court in Oxford.

The document is an affidavit supporting prosecutors’ efforts to seize cars and cash in the case. It said the hospice billed Medicare for millions of dollars services that were never rendered, sometimes involving forged documents.

Regina Swims-King was charged in June in a 37-count criminal indictment and pleaded not guilty. Her trial is scheduled for Dec. 2.
