Stone County Hospital facing federal lawsuit

STONE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Stone County Hospital and its owner, Ted Cain, are accused of submitting millions of dollars in false claims to the Medicare program over the past 13 years.

The government's complaint said Cain overcharged the Medicare program and used the reimbursements to help pay for his multimillion dollar annual salary, and the salaries of his wife and others employees including two BMW's that he used as personal vehicles.

If Cain is found liable he could face damages and penalties.
