Maternity Care and Consumer Driven Health Plans
Maternity Care and Consumer-Driven Health Plans
With maternity care representing one of the most common and costly medical interventions that women experience, Kaiser and the March of Dimes co-hosted a forum to release new studies that analyze the costs of maternity care and assess coverage under consumer-driven health plans (CDHPs). Kaiser released a new study that compares the out-of-pocket costs of maternity care under CDHPs and traditional health insurance plans. The March of Dimes released a new study prepared by Thomson Healthcare that examines the overall costs of having a baby.
The forum took place in the Foundation’s Barbara Jordan Conference Center in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, June 12, 2007.
