Rehabilitation Following Severe Traumatic Brain Injury

The hardships, frustrations and rewards associated with rehabilitation following a severe traumatic brain injury are discussed in an article in today's New York Times, Coaching the Comeback.

The article describes rehabilitation efforts at Keller Institute of Rehabilitation in New Jersey and the difficulties and rewards of this work intensive and heart breaking endeavor.  The dedication of professionals involved in the rehabilitation of survivor's of a traumatic brain injury should never be forgotten. They deserve our thanks.  They also deserve salaries that reflect their skills and efforts.

Insurance carriers need to be compelled to provide reimbursement for these essential services without arbitrary limits on the number of days that a person is entitled to services, the types of services that an individual can receive or ignorant assertions that they have reached maximum levels of improvement.
