Prosecutors: Hospice owner bilked Medicare for millions

Money in handGREENWOOD — 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.

Regina Swims-King is listed in court records as the hospice owner and the person who wrote checks to pay for the cars.

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

Swims-King’s lawyer, Cynthia Stewart, didn’t return a call seeking comment.
