Extractions: September 11, 2003 2003-R-0620 VIRGINIA AND FLORIDA CHILD BRAIN INJURY COMPENSATION FUNDS By: Saul Spigel, Chief Analyst You asked for information on programs in Virginia and Florida that compensate families whose babies are born with neurological impairment. SUMMARY In response to increasing costs of medical malpractice insurance and insurers withdrawing from the market in the late 1980s, Virginia and Florida both created funds to compensate families for the lifetime medical expenses they incur when their child is born severely impaired because of neurological injuries suffered during the birthing process. Infants were singled out because lawsuits associated with these cases have a relatively high success rate and successful cases tend to result in large monetary awards. The fund and claims process is an alternative to malpractice litigation. If a family is eligible for coverage, it cannot pursue a malpractice claim; if it is found ineligible for coverage, it can then litigate. In both states the fund is capitalized by annual assessments from physicians and hospitals. In both, physicians who participate in the program pay $ 5,000 per year and hospitals pay $ 50 per live birth. Participation in both states is voluntary. Doctors and hospitals that

Extractions: In 1986, Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Caruth, Jr., of Dallas, Texas, leased 182-acres of woodlands to the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches and issued a challenge to develop a childcare, wilderness education program. The Georgia-Pacific Corporation provided an additional 60-acres of land for the project. For many years, it operated as a wilderness camping program for boys who did not meet the traditional residential childcare criteria. The program, based on experiential learning opportunities, was successful but only served 18 boys at a time. In 1997, the Caruth Camp was converted from a wilderness program to a mirror image of the Youth Camp. Beginning in November 1997, the Caruth Camp introduced the Project Harmony program. This program is a 5 day leadership retreat for middle school students. The goal is to teach children problem-solving and communication skills while addressing racial tension and conflict within the schools. Youth undergo intensive training in conflict resolution, cultural diversity, environmental awareness, group-building exercises, academics and camping. This nationally recognized program, along with Summer Camp and other family programs will serve approximately 2,000 boys and girls every year. Project Harmony® served 1,949 during 1999-2000, while "Harmony in the Streets" (a mobile camping program) served 995 during the summer of 2000.
Children's Hospice International attention by florida s hospice programs and florida s Children s Medical ServicesProgram in the the needs of those children and their families. http://www.chionline.org/states/fl.phtml
Extractions: Agency for Health Care Administration, Florida Department of Health, Florida Hospices and Palliative Care, Inc. A Children's Hospice International Program for All-Inclusive Care for Children and their Families (CHI PACC Modeled after the Children's Hospice International Program for All-Inclusive Care for Children and their Families (CHI PACC ) and underwritten by the U.S. Government grant to Children's Hospice International for its CHI PACC Program. Extensive and continuing attention by Florida's hospice programs and Florida's Children's Medical Services Program in the Department of Health indicates that the services available to children with life-threatening conditions are not meeting the needs of those children and their families. A study conducted in 1999 reported that 50% of the hospice programs in Florida felt that the needs of terminally ill children were not addressed to their satisfaction. At that time, only 18 hospice programs of the 36 surveyed provided a full hospice program for children. In 2000-2001, only 95 children out of a total of 11,601 Medicaid beneficiaries received hospice care. As a result, The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) formed a public/private partnership that includes AHCA's Medicaid Program, the Florida's Department of Health's Children's Medical Services Network (CMSN) and Florida Hospices and Palliative Care (FHPC).

Extractions: Each of the 20 judicial court circuits employs a Guardian Ad Litem staff that recruits, trains and supervises volunteer Guardians Ad Litem. These volunteer Guardians Ad Litem visit with the children and their families, and assume the role of advocates for the child, providing the court with information, and representing the childs best interest in court. In 2003, Governor Bush advocated and signed legislation to better coordinate activities among the courts, the Department of Children and Families, Guardian Ad Litem staff and local communities. The bill provided for the transfer of the Guardian Ad Litem Program to the Justice Administrative Commission, and provided for the appointment of a full-time executive director to oversee the program statewide. The executive director will provide technical assistance to all the programs in each court circuit, develop statewide performance measures and standards, develop a Guardian Ad Litem training program and curriculum, and ensure the maximum use of funding sources.
