Illinois probes Planned Parenthood billing
CHICAGO – A published report said Illinois Medicaid’s inspector general is investigating the billing practices of Planned Parenthood of Illinois’ medical director.
Crain’s Chicago Business reported that more than $3 million in Medicaid funds went to Dr. Caroline Hoke in fiscal 2009, making Hoke the Illinois program’s second-highest-paid doctor. Payments to Hoke dropped to nothing by 2011.
A spokesman for the state’s Medicaid agency said payments are being suspended to Hoke until billing issues are resolved. Planned Parenthood of Illinois CEO Carole Brite denies wrongdoing.
