The purpose of this study was to estimate the aggregate annual costs of maternal and infant health care and to describe the flow of funds that finance that care.
Estimates of costs and financing based on household and provider surveys, third-party claims data, and hospital discharge data were combined into a single, best estimate.
The total cost of perinatal care in 1989 was $27.8 billion, or $6850 per mother-infant pair.
