Treatment Gap for Brain Injuries Reports USA Today

Treatment Gap for Brain Injuries Reports USA Today

02-Mar-2011 USA Today accurately reported in a Page 1 story on March 2, 2011 ("For Brain Injuries, a Treatment Gap") the need for individuals who sustain brain injuries to access medically-necessary rehabilitation of sufficient scope, intensity and duration from licensed professionals in accredited settings to regain the physical abilities and cognitive skills needed to live healthy, independent and satisfying lives. The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) recommends everyone check his or her health insurance plan to make sure they are adequately covered in case of a serious injury. BIAA urges the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to consider catastrophic injury in formulating regulations for the essential health benefits package under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
