AUSTIN (July 24, 2013)--Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Inc., will pay $1.4 million to settle a Medicaid fraud case, the Texas Attorney General’s Office announced Wednesday.
A whistleblower lawsuit that alleged improper billing practices sparked an investigation by the Attorney General’s Office and the Texas Health and Human Service Commission’s Office of Inspector General that determined Texas Medicaid was billed for products and services that weren’t actually rendered and weren’t medically necessary.
Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, which operates in Southeast Texas and Louisiana, did not respond to an e-mail requesting comment about the case.
