Section 21-8-3

Treatment program established.

There is hereby established the Hemophilia Treatment Program in Alabama, to be administered by the Children's Rehabilitation Service of the Department of Rehabilitation Services. Such treatment program shall use the existing facilities and staff of the Children's Rehabilitation Service, as required, for the care and treatment of persons suffering from hemophilia. The Hemophilia Treatment Program shall assist those persons who require continuing treatment with blood, blood derivatives, or a manufactured pharmaceutical product to avoid crippling, hospitalization, or other effects associated with hemophilia, but who are unable to pay for the entire cost of such services on a continuing basis, despite the existence of various types of hospital and medical insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, other government assistance programs, and private charitable assistance.
