2 Hinds County women charged with Medicaid fraud

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Two women face charges that they submitted false claims to the Mississippi Medicaid program.

Attorney General Jim Hood said in a news release Tuesday 36-year-old Jennifer Green, of Pearl, and 38-year-old Andria Jones, of Jackson, were indicted by a Hinds County grand jury for three counts of Medicaid fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit Medicaid fraud.

Hood says Green and Jones are accused of submitting and conspiring to submit false claims to Medicaid under various codes on behalf of Tutoring, Assessment and Professional Strategies in Jackson. Hood says Green was director and Jones was assistant director of the company.

Online jail records do not list attorneys for the women.

Jones is a commissioner for Jackson Redevelopment Authority, which oversees urban renewal projects.


This story has been corrected to show the name of the company includes the word Strategies and updated to show Jones is a Jackson Redevelopment Authority commissioner.
