The Richmond Times-Dispatch examines "how children were being treated by the Virginia Birth-related Neurological Injury Compensation Program. The program was set up 15 years ago by the state legislature in an attempt to lower insurance costs for doctors while also providing a lifetime of care for families of children injured at birth. To date, the program had done neither. Only 72 children have been admitted to the program, though experts say hundreds more should be eligible."
