Nashville health executive accused of fraud

The Tennessean, May 20, 2009
A prominent Nashville home healthcare executive and philanthropist is accused of making false claims that defrauded Medicare of $6.3 million. Ed Yarbrough, U.S. attorney for Middle Tennessee, accuses Jim Carell of installing a Missouri attorney as sham owner of three agencies that actually were owned by Carell's management company, to evade Medicare rules that limited a home health agency owner's compensation.
