Former Planned Parenthood manager: We “milked” Medicaid patients

Former Planned Parenthood manager Ramona Trevino says:

“Medicaid patients are like mini cash cows for Planned Parenthood. And when I worked there, we milked those patients for all we could get away with… and we did get away with it….

If a Medicaid patient at Planned Parenthood chose pills as her birth control method, then we “sold” 13 packages of pills to her and billed Medicaid for it all. (Don’t ask me how that’s possible, because I have no clue, but we did it and were told that was the way it was done.) But if a month or so later that same patient decided that the birth control pills weren’t working out for her and she now wanted the Depo Provera shot, we administered that and billed Medicaid again.

(meaning months worth of Medicaid-purchased birth control pills sold to the patient went unused)
