Subject:        ?News-HMOs & premature babies
 
Hi Medlibbers, My administrator has asked for the source for one of those
items he heard on the news where they do not give the source... It had to do
with the fact that the mortality rate for premature babies is supposedly
30% higher in HMOs than in traditional health plans.  It was a study they
were quoting from.  Has anyone else looked into this and found the source?
We have searched several current news databases, looked at recent NEJM and
JAMA issues, browsed local papers but to no avail.  I would appreciate any
info.  Thanks in advance!
