Adding lots who will need NICU care via Obama Care could cost a lot - Factor in the cost of treating all of the possible lifelong disabilities and the years of lost productivity for the caregivers, and the real tab may top $50 billion, Waitzman says. A 2006 report by the National Academy of Sciences found that the 550,000 preemies born each year in the U.S. run up about $26 billion in annual costs, mostly related to care in NICUs. http://www.businessweek.com/stories/2008-06-11/million-dollar-babies.
