OKLAHOMA CITY -

Gov. Mary Fallin has asked the Oklahoma Healthcare Authority (OHCA) to terminate its contracts with two Planned Parenthood affiliates over billing discrepancies.

On the chopping block could be Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma in OKC and Planned Parenthood of the Heartland in Tulsa.

Earlier in the year, Fallin asked OHCA to review Planned Parenthood’s operations to ensure no state funds were being misused. The review turned up no misuse of Medicaid funds, but did show a billing error rate of just over 20.3 percent at one location and 14.2 percent at the other.

“These errors result in overbilling to the Oklahoma taxpayer.  The lack of attention to the requirements imposed on a responsible provider is a continuing problem for these Planned Parenthood affiliates,” said Fallin.

Fallin has also asked OHCA to consider terminating other contracts with similar providers for the same reason. Fallin claims that terminating those contracts will not interfere with women in the state to choose healthcare provider services.
