4 charged in health insurance policy scheme

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Springfield couple and two other people have been indicted on charges that they defrauded more than 17,000 people of more than $28 million in a national health care scheme.

Acting U.S. Attorney David Rivera's office said those charged Wednesday are 46-year-old Bart Sidney Posey Sr.; 46-year-old Angela Slavey Posey; 50-year-old William M. Worthy II of Isle of Palms, S.C.; and 65-year-old Richard Hall Bachman of Austin, Texas.

The 57-count indictment alleges conspiracy, wire and mail fraud, embezzlement from a health care benefit plan and money laundering.

Attorney Nader Baydoun, who represented Posey, his wife and his companies in previous legal proceedings, did not immediately return a message seeking comment. No listing or information about legal representation was available for Bachman. The Tennessean said Worthy is serving a prison sentence.
