Welcome to the website of one of the most innovative programs in the nation. Designed to assure access to obstetrical services for all Commonwealth residents, the Virginia Birth-Related Neurological Injury Compensation Program also has distinguished itself by assuring superior care for admitted children.

A Lifetime Of Care

Every year, small numbers of babies are born with serious birth-related neurological injuries. The Birth-Injury Program helps parents take care of these children for life. The Program covers what insurance and other programs don’t — medically necessary expenses such as medical expenses, hospital expenses, rehabilitation expenses, in-home nursing care and much more. In fact, an extensive Virginia General Assembly Joint Legislative and Review Commission (JLARC) study conducted in 2002 states:

In addition to serving more birth-injured children than the tort system, the program provides benefits that exceed the medical malpractice cap for the typical child. (JLARC Review, Page 45)
