This study was conducted to determine if the cost per patient of obstetric services at Womack Army Community Hospital would increase significantly after the implementation of a Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Uniformed Services -- Preferred Provides Organization delivery system. The average delivery cost under the system without the CHAMPUS-PPO delivery system and predicted average delivery cost under the new system were computed. The author concluded that the implementation of a CHAMPUS-PPO delivery system would not significantly increase the cost per patient of obstetric services at Womack Army Community Hospital. Proceeding with the CHAMPUS-PPO birthing center initiative was recommended. Keywords Health care, Obstetric services costs, Medical services.
