Treatment Gap Wide For Brain Injury Victims

As reported by USA Today, there is a large treatment gap for brain injury victims in the United States. Despite the fact that programs like Medicare and Medicaid, and even most insurers, cover medical costs related to brain surgery and intensive care needed to save traumatic brain injury patients, many insurers simply don’t provide adequate funds for rehabilitation.

These rehab programs may cost anywhere from $600 to $8,000 a day, depending on the nature and extent of the services provided, according to Susan Connors, president of the Brain Injury Association of America.
