Provider Costs and Savings

Current Provider Cost Drivers


Rest easy, your costs are under control...
  • About 30 to 35 percent of NICU admissions have a length of stay (LOS) of fewer than four days and often have hospital payments for care bundled with maternity payments.
  • Of critical importance is that the remaining 65 to 70 percent of NICU admissions typically have an average LOS of 20 or more days.
  • These patients are a source of large expenditures. Therefore, payments for a NICU admission with a LOS greater than four days typically will be $40,000 to $80,000.
