VA has initiated a new program to help veterans with TBI. DOD has proven that cognitive rehab helps servicemen with TBI. VA is now conducting a pilot program pushing that rehab out to recent veterans using the private sector. The program helps veterans with moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries who need long-term residential care by placing them in high-quality rehabilitation facilities that are closer to their homes and families. This avoids the cost and trauma of an institutional or hospital setting.
Michigan has great rehab facilities because of its long history of supplying health care to automobile accident victims under its unique no fault insurance programs. Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center, a Mason Michigan facility, was selected by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to take part in a cutting-edge pilot program. Origami is one of 21 facilities in the nation to launch the Assisted Living for Veterans with TBI pilot program.
This is a great idea of using existing resources to medically service our veterans. VA does not have to re-invent the wheel and more people can be helped by the private sector's ability to scale up or down as needed. Read more at:
