Our BirthBundle® payment proposal

It has been a long while since I posted anything here.  We have been busy putting together a proposal to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) encouraging them to pay for perinatal care as a single payment for the 70% of mothers who are low-risk.  Our BirthBundle® proposal is open for public comments for another two weeks.  A group of experts will be assessing our proposal and reaching a decision by the end of the year.  If you have time please read it and comment.  The link is at:
