Planned Parenthood, patient sue over SC Gov. McMaster Medicaid order

COLUMBIA, SC -- Planned Parenthood South Atlantic and a patient filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court on Friday asking a judge to reverse Gov. Henry McMaster’s July order that booted the health care provider from the state’s Medicaid provider network.

The suit was filed against Joshua Baker, head of the S.C. Department of Health and Human Services, the agency that oversees the state’s Medicaid program.

In a statement, Planned Parenthood South Atlantic said the July 13 order has forced Planned Parenthood to cease providing health care services to S.C. Medicaid patients. Planned Parenthood has clinics in Columbia and Charleston.

McMaster’s order terminated Planned Parenthood’s ability to seek Medicaid reimbursements for providing health care services — for example, birth control and testing for sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV — to the state’s poorest women and men.

Chump and the rethugs need to be swept out of office. They are greedy callous bastards.
