Stop Planned Parenthood - Taxpayer fraud in millions of dollars
August 20, 2013
Earlier this month, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast was ordered to pay $4.3 million for making false, fraudulent and ineligible Medicaid claims through the Texas Women's Health Program from 2003 to 2009.
Several former employees have filed lawsuits claiming they were instructed to repeatedly make false Medicaid claims. The alleged Medicaid fraud amount totals over $12 million for tens of thousands of false claims.
Planned Parenthood's cost for a 28-day supply of birth control pills mailed to clients was $2.98, but the Medicaid reimbursement Planned Parenthood received for the pills was $26.32. In some cases, the Postal Service returned the birth control pills to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood then "resold" the same birth control pills and billed Medicaid again for the same pills.
In short, tax dollars are being used for abortion. If Planned Parenthood is intentionally fraudulent with its Medicaid claims - essentially stealing even more money from taxpayers - the abortion factory definitely shouldn't receive government funding.
Over the past ten years, Planned Parenthood and its affiliates have reportedly received more than $4 billion in taxpayer funding. During that time, approximately 20 percent of Planned Parenthood's affiliates have been implicated in waste, abuse, and potential fraud.
Urge your members of Congress to aggressively investigate Planned Parenthood for Medicaid fraud. In addition, point out that Planned Parenthood does not need, nor deserve, federal funding.
