Planned Parenthood Committed Medicaid Fraud
Planned Parenthood has begun shutting down facilities in Texas. It would have you know that it would rather not comply with regulations to ensure the safety of its patients than spend money upgrading facilities. Never mind all the money Planned Parenthood has.
Turns out that some of that money is due to over billing Medicaid. According to Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, Planned Parenthood has just agreed to settle with Texas in a Medicaid investigation. It will pay back $1.4 million for “fraudulently bill[ing the] Texas Medicaid program for products, services either not provided or not necessary.”
The investigation began because of a whistleblower.
Amazing that requiring abortion facilities to have a 8 foot wide hallways can shut down Medicaid fraud!
