Baton Rouge-based Faith Home Health Care Services, Inc. officials were indicted by a federal grand jury in the Middle District of Louisiana for fraud involving Medicare reimbursements to the company’s pension plan.

According to the indictment, company president Paulette White Jackson and her daughter, Detra Tate Fairley, who was the company’s vice president, received money from Medicare for purposes of funding the company’s pension plan.
