VBPD serves as Virginia's Developmental Disabilities (DD) Council. DD Councils are in every state and territory of the United States. They work for the benefit of individuals with DD and their families to identify needs and help develop policies, programs and services that will meet these needs in a manner that respects dignity and independence.
Virginia will be offering new high quality, low cost healthcare coverage to thousands of people with disabilities beginning January 1, 2019. Qualification criteria have changed and new plans are available. To see if you qualify and to get enrolled, visit http://www.coverva.org/.
