Previous Live Action News reports have documented Planned Parenthood‘s history of potential fraud in light of half a billion tax dollars being entrusted to the abortion corporation annually. Watchdog organizations like Alliance Defending Freedom and the Charlotte Lozier Institute have published reports showing Planned Parenthood’s blatant disregard for regulations regarding Medicaid dollars.

In addition to those reports, here are more cases involving the misuse of Medicaid reimbursements by the abortion corporation:

1) Kansas

On January 23, 2017, Planned Parenthood Great Plains and Comprehensive Health of Planned Parenthood Great Plains Kansas (PGP) agreed to pay more than $18,800 for “allegedly violating the Civil Monetary Penalties Law,” according to a report published by the Office of Inspector General (OIG). According to the OIG, PGP submitted claims to Medicaid where the services were:

  • provided by advanced registered nurse practitioners (ARNPs) but were billed improperly under a supervisory physician’s name and national provider identifier
  • provided by ARNPs who were not properly enrolled or credentialed under the Medicaid program and were billed improperly under a supervisory physician’s name and national provider identifier

2) North Carolina

In 2016, the OIG reported that Planned Parenthood Health System, Inc., incorporated in North Carolina, agreed to pay nearly $1.6 million for potentially violating the Civil Monetary Penalties Law. This case involved violations Planned Parenthood disclosed to the OIG; several states were involved, including North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. The OIG found that Planned Parenthood submitted claims to Medicaid programs. Billing errors were:

  • services billed under a provider number different than the medical professional who provided the service
  • billed for services of non-physician practitioners who were not properly enrolled in their state Medicaid program

3) Michigan

An audit report of Planned Parenthood and Mid South Michigan, conducted by the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) in 2013, found that Planned Parenthood claimed too much for their CEO’s salary, overcharging MDCH in the amount of $3,358. In addition, the audit noted that Planned Parenthood misclassified expenses, something Planned Parenthood defended as a “spreadsheet error.”

4) New Jersey

A 2008 Office of Inspector General report in New Jersey reveals that Planned Parenthood believes all the services they provide pertain to family planning, and thus warrant a Medicaid reimbursement, when this is not the case. The report states in part:

During our visits to family planning clinics throughout the State, many providers (especially Planned Parenthood providers) stated that they billed all claims to Medicaid as “family planning.” Officials at these clinics stated that they believed that all of the services they provided were related to family planning. Therefore, officials at these clinics often populated the family planning indicator field on Medicaid claims even though the service provided did not meet the criteria for 90-percent Federal funding. By populating this field, the MMIS designated the claim as eligible for 90-percent Federal funding.

5) New York

A 2008 audit by the Office of Inspector General in that state, which found that providers incorrectly coded the 90 Medicaid claims by marking “Yes” in the family planning indicator field, said in a footnote:

Officials at Planned Parenthood providers stated that they believed that nearly all the services they provide are related related to family planning. However, the medical review determined that the providers improperly claimed, for example, services to pregnant women, treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, and counseling visits unrelated to family planning services.

In 2011, the State of New York, Office of the Medicaid Inspector General, sent a letter to Planned Parenthood of the Hudson Peconic, requiring restitution of overpayments of nearly $31,000 after reviewing claims with payment dates of January 2006 through December 31, 2008.

A New York State Office of Medicaid Inspector General audit of Planned Parenthood Hudson Picnic, published in 2011, reviewed HIV counseling paid from July 1, 2004 through June 30, 2007, and found that nearly $2,227,000 was overpaid but only repayment of just over $2 million was required. Out of a random sample of 100 services the IG reviewed, 83 had at least one error and did not comply with state requirements; a number of those contained more than one deficiency.

 

These examples are yet more proof that serious oversight is needed to guard the millions of tax dollars being sent to the nation’s largest single abortion provider every year. Planned Parenthood’s history of fraud even extends to violations with the federal 340B Drug Discount Program, previously reported here at Live Action News and at Townhall.

Despite this evidence, and after years of politicians promising to defund this abortion behemoth, Planned Parenthood is again poised to receive another half a billion taxpayer dollars in 2018.

Eugenics founded Planned Parenthood has to pay “activists” to “get out the vote” to support pro-abortion candidates!

Posted in Abortion, Eugenics, Planned Parenthood, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 20, 2010 by saynsumthn

The nation’s largest abortion provider who receives millions of federal tax dollars every year is using that money to pay people to “Get out the vote” and support pro-abortion candidates. Planned Parenthood was founded by a member of the American Eugenics Society who admitted that she gave Klan Speeches – her name is Margaret Sanger.

Now, they are using our money to fund their eugenic agendas…and they are paying “activists” to go door to door to make sure that Planned Parenthood continues their ability to stick their hands in the pockets of tax payers, many of which are now unemployed !
