Nearly 50% of U.S. Births Paid for by Medicaid

By OBHG Super Admin on September 17th, 2013

A study published by Women’s Health Issues in September 2013, revealed the percentage of births covered by Medicaid rose from 40% in 2008 to 48% in 2010, a difference of about 90,000 births.

The new study, intended to create a baseline to assess the impact of the Affordable Care Act, was generated by researchers at George Washington University and March of Dimes examining data for the nearly four million U.S. births in 2010, on a state-by-state basis. Southern states had the highest percentage of births paid for by the program, while the lowest rates were in the Northeast and Northwest. Hawaii received the least Medicaid funding at 24% with Louisiana topping the list at 70%. 

Currently, all states cover pregnant women with incomes up to 133% of the poverty level, under the Affordable Care Act, nearly half of the states will increase that coverage to 138%.  In addition to elevating the standard of care for all women and their newborns, Ob Hospitalist Group is committed to helping our hospital partners anticipate and respond to the changing tides in U.S. healthcare. Studies like this (Women’s Health Issues Volume 23, Issue 5) can serve as the basis for an informed dialogue among, community providers, hospitalists, and hospital administrators on how to best serve their patients.
