Fact Sheet: Government Funding Sources for Planned Parenthood

To view as PDF, see Fact Sheet: Government Funding Sources for Planned Parenthood

 

Thanks to a data point in Planned Parenthood’s annual report for 2013-2014, it’s public knowledge that the organization received $528.4 million in funds from all levels of government in that fiscal year.  These funds are largely from the U.S. government and primarily from the Medicaid program, which is the primary federal-state program paying for direct medical services to the poor, defined for most purposes as individuals and families with incomes at or below 133% of the federal poverty line (FPL).

 

In addition to Medicaid, a variety of other federal programs, featuring grants, contracts, and other reimbursement schemes, provide tax dollars to Planned Parenthood.  A Government Accountability Office report released in March 2015 provides a list of the programs that provide such funding[1] and allows construction of a table of amounts and rough percentages each conduit provides out of the national total above.[2]  This information can be found in Enclosure VI of the GAO Report.

[1] All figures expressed in millions of dollars.

[2] The report is in the form of a letter response to members of Congress; its subject line is “Health Care Funding: Federal Obligations to and Expenditures by Selected Entities Involved in Health-Related Activities, 2010-2012”; the report covers six organizations including the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and its affiliates (Government Accountability Office, GAO-15-270R Funding and Health Services: March 20, 2015) at http://www.gao.gov/assets/670/669194.pdf.

+   The GAO report renders this total as $0.23, an apparent error.

++ Each insurance program includes state funds; this federal component shown is overstated.
