Defunding Planned Parenthood - what does that mean?

Does Planned Parenthood get only Medicaid money, or are there direct subsidies?

Last night, several Republican candidates claimed to have defunded Planned Parenthood. What does that mean, and why are we only hearing about this now?

My understanding is that one reason Planned Parenthood is so important is that in many locations, it is the only clinic accepting Medicaid patients. Which raises the question - if states refused to allow Medicaid patients to go to PP clinics, where did all those patients go?
