On January 1, 1998 insurance companies will be required to pay for at least a 48 hour stay for vaginal delivery births, up to 96 hours for c-sections, and while the mother and doctor can decide to leave earlier, health plans will be prohibited from offering doctors any incentive for early discharges.
The 48 hour provision is something President Clinton and the first lady have advocated, as well as many republicans on Capitol Hill.

Also going into effect the first of 1998, an agreement meant to reduce discrimination in insurance coverage for mental illness.
While health plans will not be required to cover mental health, if they do the benefits cannot be more restrictive than physical benefits, lifetime and annual limits can no longer be separate, although co-payments and deductibles can, businesses with 50 or fewer employees are exempt.
SEN. PETE DOMENICI/R-NM: WHAT THEY CAN NO LONGER DO IS COVER THE MENTALLY ILL AND SAY YOU HAVE A SMALL LIFETIME MENTAL AGGREGATE PAYMENT.. HAVE A BIGGER ONE.

The insurance industry argues the new mother and mental health provisions will be expensive and are nothing more than government mandates. The legislation does contain a clause requiring that costs be monitored, but both enjoy widespread support on Capitol Hill, and lawmakers are willing to take the risk to see if they work.
