The United States has a high maternal mortality rate with high racial disparities. Various bundled payment models, one payment for care during pregnancy that includes the birth and care after delivery, are being used to address preventable complications. This workgroup will develop a bundled payment model for maternity care that includes pre- and post-natal care, addresses disparities, and includes relevant metrics. The workgroup started meeting in January 2019.
