The Maternal and Newborn Health Protection Act of 1996 (NMHPA) is a federal law that regulates the duration of coverage for hospitalization of a mother and newborn related to childbirth. In general, group health plans and health insurance companies subject to the NMHPA can NOT limit hospitalization benefits at delivery to less than 48 hours after vaginal delivery or 96 hours after caesarean delivery. If you give birth to your baby in the hospital, the 48-hour (or 96-hour) period begins at the time of birth. If you give birth to your baby outside of the hospital and are later hospitalized in connection with the birth (as determined by the treating provider), the period begins at the time of admission to the hospital.
