Planned Parenthood Defrauded Medicaid – Hit with $5.5 Billion Lawsuit

by Nathan A. Cherry, 07/11/2012

I loath Planned Parenthood. Anyone that’s followed my writing for any length of time knows that. But I want to stress, reiterate, make perfectly clear, I loath Planned Parenthood. I would shut every PP clinic today if I could. As if breaking the law, skirting parental notification laws, covering up sex-trafficking, approving sex-selection abortions, and just being sleazy wasn’t enough, now they are being sued for defrauding Medicaid (you and me, the tax payer) in a contraception scheme. WND.com reports: “The lawsuit claims that Planned Parenthood’s ‘C-Mail’ scam began by automatically sending a year’s supply of birth control pills to women who came into one of the organization’s clinics. The pills were usually sent without a physician’s order…and were even shipped without the patient’s consent or foreknowledge. Planned Parenthood then billed Medicaid to the tune of $26.32 for each month’s worth of pills, the lawsuit claims, even though the cost to the clinics was only $2.98.” Ugh, I loath Planned Parenthood.
