The Health Care Transformation Task Force’s (HCTTF) 2019 report on value-based maternity care identified specific initiatives, organizations, and subject matter experts that have made the most progress in developing and/or implementing innovative payment models that support improvements in maternity care.

The report examines the evidence from existing efforts to transition away from fee-for-service care, categorized into three outcomes-driven maternity payment levels with increasing provider accountability for cost and quality: (a) perinatal fee schedule changes; (b) value-based maternity payments which link reimbursement to maternal outcomes and total cost; and, (c) comprehensive payments for mother and newborn which link reimbursement for both maternal and infant quality outcomes and total cost.
