Planned Parenthood

Texas $1.4 million fraud settlement

24 Jul, 2013

The organization agrees to settle a billing fraud claim made against it by the State of Texas.

Investigators determined that Planned Parenthood falsified material information in patients’ medical records in order to support fraudulent reimbursement claims.

However, Planned Parenthood’s spokesperson denies the fraud allegations and says the organization agreed to settle for practical reasons.

Continuing this litigation in the hostile environment for women’s health would have ensured a lengthy and costly process that would have distracted our energies and required us to share the private medical information of thousands of women.
