Research demonstrates cost-savings of CHIP Prenatal Services...

Through a grant provided by The Commonwealth Fund, CHIP worked with Sentara Health System on a quality enhancing initiative, Partners in Pregnancy (PnP), to improve outcomes for high risk pregnant women and their infants. Claims data were analyzed for the mothers’ prenatal care, delivery and the infant’s first year of life and were compared with a risk-matched control group from the same geographic regions. The pregnant women receiving CHIP had similar claims, utilization measures, and inpatient days to those in the control group. But, with the additional CHIP services provided at a modest cost, major savings were identified for the
infants during their first year of life:

• CHIP babies spent 44% fewer days in the hospital than the control babies.
• NICU days per 1,000 were 3,086 for CHIP babies and 6,417 for the control group.
