This project consists of a randomized, controlled clinical trial comparing the efficacy and cost effectiveness through one-year postpartum of current best practices for smoking cessation during pregnancy vs. best practices plus financial incentives among 230 pregnant Medicaid recipients. It also includes a third condition of 115 pregnant non-smokers matched to the smokers on socio-demographic and health conditions to compare the extent to which the treatments reduce the burden of smoking and to estimate how much more might be accomplished by further improvements in the incentives intervention without exceeding cost-effectiveness.
