The maternity stay rules will be out "any day now," says HCFA. They await clearance by the Office of Management and Budget. HCFA promulgated the rules under the Mothers' and Newborns' Health Protection Act, which took effect this year. The law requires group health insurance plans that offer maternity benefits to allow 48-hour hospital stays after normal births and 96-hour stays for births by Caesarean section.... AHCPR is seeking $15 million in fiscal 1999 to implement the scientific and research recommendations of the President's Commission on Consumer Protection and Quality in the Health Care Industry. The program would determine the effectiveness of quality measures in increasing the success rates of medical treatments.
