This resulted in a $4.3 million settlement in favor of TX, Fed govt, and the whistle-blower.
Last year, Karen Reynolds, a former PPGC employee, filed a whistleblower’s complaint with the Attorney General of Texas and the U.S. Department of Justice, alleging that the abortion business engaged in an intricate Medicaid fraud scheme.
According to LifeNews, the former “health care assistant” submitted company memos and emails to support her charge that PPGC had engaged in a system-wide plot to swindle Medicaid, Title XX, and the Women’s Health Program out of tens of millions of dollars over the last decade.
Reynolds alleged that her bosses trained PPGC staff to bill government agencies for medical and family planning services that were never rendered, for services that would not generally be provided by medical personnel, and for abortion-related services that were covered up to appear as non-abortion-related.
Interestingly, though, this story was headlined on Breitbart because after the settlement was announced, The Ross Perot Foundation made a $1 contribution to Planned Parenhood Gulf Coast (the branch that had perpetrated this fraud).

The DallasMorning News reports 1 million dollars, not $1.
They also make zero mention about this being a results of a whistleblower. Would you have a more reliable source than LifeNews regarding this settlement?
I don't blame you. I blame bad policy. I blame the interventionists. I blame the neoconservatives who preach this stuff, who believe in it like a religion -- that they have to promote American goodness even if you have to bomb and kill people. In short, I don’t blame America; I blame neocons." — Ron Paul
