Plea Change Hearing Set In Hospice Fraud Case

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — A change of plea hearing has been scheduled for Thursday for the owner of a Mississippi hospice charged with running a multimillion dollar Medicare fraud.

Regina Swims-King was charged in June in a 37-count criminal indictment related to the actions of Angelic Hospice in Greenwood.

The change of plea hearing is scheduled to take place in U.S. District Court in Oxford. Swims-King had previously pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors said the hospice billed Medicare for millions of dollars services that were never rendered, sometimes involving forged documents.
