· Claims by Planned Parenthood that it relied on Komen grants to provide breast cancer screenings, including mammograms, for low-income, Medicaid-eligible women, were false. Indeed, Planned Parenthood is not licensed to provide mammograms and has no mammography equipment in any of its clinics.
Planned Parenthood appears to have billed the Title XIX-Medicaid program for services, including breast cancer screening, already rendered to the same low-income women covered by the Komen grants.
But there is much more. Recently, Planned Parenthood paid $4.3 million to settle a lawsuit that accused Planned Parenthood of submitting “false claims . . . for medically unnecessary or unneeded items and services . . . [and for] items and services that were never provided by” Planned Parenthood.
