  1. The effect of providing health coverage to poor uninsured pregnant women in Massachusetts.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives.-There has been substantial policy interest in whether the provision of health coverage to poor uninsured pregnant women affects access to prenatal care and birth outcomes.

    We therefore examined whether the statewide provision of health coverage to uninsured low-income pregnant women affects access to prenatal care and infant birth outcomes.

    Design.-Natural experiment.

    Patients.-All in hospital, single-gestation live births in 1984 (N=57257) and 1987 (N=64 346).

    Intervention.-In 1985, Massachusetts instituted Healthy Start, a program providing health coverage to uninsured pregnant women with incomes below 185% of the federal poverty level.
