Children Born with Spina Bifida to Certain Vietnam or Korean Veterans Program (SB) is a comprehensive health care benefits program administered by the VA for birth children of certain Vietnam and Korea Veterans who have been diagnosed with spina bifida (except spina bifida occulta). The SB program provides reimbursement for medical services, pharmacy, durable medical equipment, and supplies. Effective October 10, 2008, Public Law 110-387, Section 408, expanded the coverage of health care benefits beyond the spina bifida condition. The VA’s Health Administration Center in Denver, Colorado, manages the SB Program, including the authorization of benefits and the subsequent processing and payment of claims.
To be eligible for the SB Program, you must be eligible for a monetary award under the Veterans Benefit Administration (VBA). The Denver VA Regional Office makes determination regarding this entitlement. The VBA notifies the VA Health Administration Center after an award is made and the eligible child is enrolled in SB.
