Proposed Projects

 

Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) at Delivery

FPQC stakeholders have proposed an initiative to increase the use of LARC immediately postpartum to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies and improve maternal and child health.

Florida's AHCA has instituted a Medicaid policy enabling hospitals and providers to be receive full reimbursement for LARC device and physician insertion procedure fee prior to hospital discharge.

 

Primary Cesarean Reduction Initiative

FPQC stakeholders have proposed an initiative to reduce low-risk primary Cesarean sections in Florida.

Florida has the fourth highest rate among U.S. states. A recent analysis of birth certificates showed that the cesarean rate for Nulliparous Term Singleton Vertex (NTSV) cesareans ranges from 6.6% to 59.5%. This variation provides a major opportunity for improvement.
