The United States Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California and the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General closed a six-year investigation into the billing practices of Planned Parenthood. The investigation, which was triggered by a whistleblower lawsuit brought under the False Claims Act, focused on claims for reimbursement submitted under a government-funded family planning program. The government had indicated that it could seek recovery of more than $50 million in payments from Planned Parenthood, but closed the investigation with no repayment demand.
