Spina Bifida

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides monetary allowances, vocational training and rehabilitation and VA-financed health care benefits to certain Korea and Vietnam Veterans' birth children who have been diagnosed with spina bifida. For the purpose of the VA Spina Bifida Healthcare Program, spina bifida is defined as all forms or manifestations of spina bifida (except spina bifida occulta).

The Chief Business Office Purchased Care in Denver, Colorado manages the VA Spina Bifida Healthcare Program, including the authorization of benefits and the subsequent processing and payment of health care claims.
