The Health Care Cost Institute (HCCI) released three analyses on maternal health care in the United States. The first compares the cost of childbirth from state to state, using claims data from over 350,000 deliveries. An issue paper on postpartum care finds that spending extends across the full year after delivery. And a new analysis of prenatal care indicates that utilization increased with age and the presence of risk factors.
