  • Sensitivity analyses based on 25%–50% higher or lower estimates of staff, facility, and family costs produced changes in total costs for each treatment, but the pattern of relative costs between groups remained similar.

  • a When there were significant between-group differences, groups with the same superscript in the same row did not differ from each other.

  • b When there were significant between-group differences, groups with the same superscript in the same row did not differ from each other.

  • c Significant differences were based on ANOVA.
