    portion of ob gyns medical malpractice premiums The task force also backs the expanded use of nurse midwives physician assistants and family practitioners to support obstetricians in normal deliveries Braithwaite said the council has discussed the OB reimbursement issue with Independence Blue Cross and Highmark the state s two largest Blue Cross organizations which intend to merge They said they are going to take a look at their rates and see if there is some way they can help the hospitals he said Ludmir said the heads of the obstetrics departments at the Philadelphia hospitals that are still delivering babies have been meeting monthly to strategize about resources and work with the DVHC task force on the issue Of rules and money Also represented on the task force is the nonprofit Maternity Care Coalition in Philadelphia which spurred the formation of the task force after issuing a report Childbirth at a Crossroads on the troubled state of obstetrical care in southeastern Pennsylvania Among the report s findings Obstetrics is no longer the gateway to lifelong loyalty to a hospital Today referral patterns are determined by insurance contract agreements The coalition is urging the state to temporarily relax obstetrical department guidelines that govern physical space devoted to the service so hospitals can take on more deliveries without needing to spend millions of dollars to expand or renovate space to be in accordance with state Department of Health regulations Letty Thall the coalition s public policy director said the group also supports allocating extra funds to hospitals that have a high volume of Medicaid deliveries The coalition has also brought up the idea of prohibiting hospitals that receive state support from closing obstetrical departments We don t think they should be able to drop OB for service lines with more favorable reimbursements Thall said Under a special funding arrangement with the state Temple University Hospital was the lone hospital in the state to qualify for a special 4 8 million payment from state and federal matching funds created to support the high volume of births handled by Temple s obstetrics program for women on medical assistance Temple officials said they were losing 25 million a year on obstetrics because of shortfalls in government payments for deliveries and the escalating malpractice insurance costs The infusion wasn t enough to offset systemwide losses that resulted in Temple announcing a series of cost cutting moves that included phasing out obstetrical services at Jeanes A losing proposition Jeanes CEO Linda Grass said her hospital didn t have the capacity to handle the influx of deliveries that followed the closing of Parkview Hospital in 2003 and the shutdown of Frankford Hospitals OB unit last year Jeanes has been in the OB business for 50 years Grass said In the early 2000s we reached 800 deliveries and we thought that was it We thought the day would never come when we broke 1 000 deliveries in a year The department was constructed to max out at a thousand

    underwhelming attempt to change a hugely complicated issue that is snared in a thicket of political social insurance and pharmaceutical interests And then there was President Bush s half baked effort signed in 2003 to change Medicare without hurting the almighty pharmaceutical firms The renewed call for universal health care led us to a report released two months ago by the Maternity Care Coalition a social service agency that works to improve maternal and child health and provides help in high risk neighborhoods Titled Childbirth at a Crossroads the report presents a glum picture of maternal health care inequities in southeastern Pennsylvania See www MOMobile org for the full report The report s key findings look at the areas of diversity access care equity and support For the mothers of the 50 000 babies born annually in southeastern Pennsylvania these can be barriers to thorough safe and timely care For example Diversity The many cultures races ethnicities and patients with various incomes in the region means there is a need for doctors with broad cultural and linguistic skills health care facilities sensitive to languages spoken in the area and personnel eager to work with such a cross section Health care inequities They continue with black infants in the area more than twice as likely to die as white ones according to the report And prenatal care is low for the uninsured teens Medicaid patients and black Asian and Hispanic women Support Childbirth is seen more as a medical condition to be feared than as an uplifting family centered event to be celebrated and is part of a life cycle But in the report the findings under care and access are the ones that stand out The number of doctors nurses and midwives continues to shrink thanks to fear of lawsuits
