Engaging in rehabilitation can be a costly enterprise.  Often, insurance will not pay for rehabilitation or will provide only limited funding for such treatment.  This puts significant pressure on a brain injury survivor’s family to try to find a way to arrange necessary treatment for their loved one.   In addition, this is a situation that occurs while that family is almost always already experiencing a financial squeeze due to factors such as loss of income and costs of hospitalizations.

In some cases, a state government will provide funding for rehabilitation following a brain injury.  In Texas, the Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) pays for the treatment of many survivors of brain and spinal injuries.  DARS has two programs to fund rehabilitation: the Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services(CRS) and Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) programs.  They may also help survivors acquire necessary equipment and receive needed support when returning to work or school.  Below is a link to the DARS website for more information:

If you do not live in Texas, check with your state’s health department to see if there is a comparable agency in your state willing to fund rehabilitation, as many states offer programs similar to DARS.
