If taxes don't pay for abortions how does one abortionist collect $3.1 million in Medicaid reimbursements in one year?
In a recent report published by the Blaze, in a Crain Business report, Dr. Caroline Hoke received over three million dollars in Medicaid funds in the 2009 for abortion services. The Illinois Medicaid inspector general is now taking look into the billing practices of Dr. Hoke.
“The state Department of Healthcare and Family Services has withheld payments to Dr. Hoke until “billing issues” are resolved, a DHFS spokesman confirms. He declines to comment on the details of the case.
Planned Parenthood of Illinois CEO Carole Brite denies any wrongdoing, calling the inquiry a “routine review.” She says the organization will have to repay the state, but she declines to say how much.”
“The probe raises questions about an important source of funding for the organization, which received about half of its $25 million revenue from Medicaid in the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011, the most recent data available.”
