Stuart Bowen, the inspector general of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, told The Dallas Morning News that a whistleblower alleging Medicaid fraud at Texas Planned Parenthood clinics spurred the agency’s investigation.
The Daily Signal previously reported that inspectors from the Texas Office of the Inspector General recently served subpoenas for clinic records at several Planned Parenthood centers in Texas.
Bowen told The Dallas Morning News that his office is investigating Planned Parenthood due to “specific allegations of fraud that were brought to us by a whistleblower.”
He added that the fraud allegations were brought to the office’s attention “almost concurrently” with controversial undercover videos of Planned Parenthood executives.
