Regulations Governing Virginia Newborn Screening Services [12 VAC 5 ? 71]
 

Screening helps the medical community to be more proactive and creates more anticipation into the process.  Newborns who are treated early will have a greater chance of survival and in the long run it will reduce cost of care for everyone.
