Gov. Fallin Attempts to Defund PPCO

Gov, Mary Fallin recently announced she is seeking to terminate Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma's Medicaid contract. She ordered an audit of PPCO and announced that the error rates of insurance claims under PPCO calls for ending the Medicaid contract all-together. See her press release here.

These types of audits are very normal, and the error rates PPCO has experienced are average, in comparison to other Medicaid clinics. PPCO is appealing the order and reviewing the Governors audit, which could take several weeks to months. In the meantime, rest assured we will remain available to our Medicaid patients for all our normal services. We have been here for our patients for over 75 years and we will continue, no matter what. #TheseDoorsStayOpen #StandWithPP
