October 22, 2015: Officials from the Texas Office of Inspector General served subpoenas at Planned Parenthood facilities in San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas this morning.
Their goal is to determine whether these clinics are guilty of defrauding the state by illegally using Medicaid money to fund abortions.
Planned Parenthood officials denied any wrongdoing, claiming the Texas IG just wants to deprive people of all that “professional, compassionate and quality health care” Planned Parenthood provides. ::coughcough::
Another PPGC Medicaid fraud case is working its way through the courts regarding Medicaid charges for incarcerated teens, most of whom were minorities. The suit alleges that PPGC billed Medicaid for services that were never performed, for unnecessary medical procedures inflicted on the teens, and also for abortion-related services which are not covered by Medicaid.
Karen Reynolds worked at PPGC for ten years. She says all of the PPGC offices were given revenue goals and instructed to defraud taxpayers if necessary to meet those goals.
