On October 1, 1988, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (Public Law 99-660) created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). The VICP was established to ensure an adequate supply of vaccines, stabilize vaccine costs, and establish and maintain an accessible and efficient forum for individuals found to be injured by certain vaccines. The VICP is a no-fault alternative to the traditional tort system for resolving vaccine injury claims that provides compensation to people found to be injured by certain vaccines. The U. S. Court of Federal Claims decides who will be paid. Three Federal government offices have a role in the VICP:
the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS); the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ); and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (the Court). The VICP is located in the HHS, Health Resources and Services Administration, Healthcare Systems Bureau, Division of Vaccine Injury Compensation.
Effective October 1, 2012, Local Health Departments may not administer publicly funded vaccine to fully privately insured patients under any circumstances.
Insured patients are not eligible for publicly funded vaccine if they are enrolled in a commercial health insurance plan that provides coverage for the vaccine(s) being administered. Federal Vaccine for Children program requirements consider such patients fully insured even if the commercial health insurance plan does not reimburse for the full cost of the vaccine or the commercial health insurance plan has a deductible.
