How do people pay for brain injury rehabilitation? Many people already have brain injury insurance coverage because in Texas, policies are mandated to provide brain injury coverage. People who live out of state may be subject to different rules, however.
Our team of insurance specialists works hard to ensure that brain injury rehabilitation treatments are covered by the patient’s insurance carrier. If a patient doesn't have insurance, we can help you find funding from other sources such as the Health and Human Services (HHS) or explore Affordable Care Act plans. We do everything we can to secure brain injury insurance coverage, and find assistance.
We want our patients to concentrate on their recovery and not be distracted by other issues, so we try and make the admissions and funding process as easy as possible. Our admissions team remains active throughout the individual's stay at Pate and will facilitate and advocate for additional days in therapy if needed.
We draw from several funding sources, including:
- Group health insurance
- Affordable Care Act plans
- Workers’ compensation
- Private pay
- Other potential funding sources can be vetted on a case by case basis
*Please note our services are not currently covered by Medicare or Medicaid.
To start the admissions process, we will confirm the injury, your coverage details and speak with your carrier to receive pre-approval to proceed.
Please have the following information on hand, if possible:
- Patient’s current location
- Date of birth
- Desired date of admission
- Date of injury
- Name and phone number of family member
- Name and phone number of responsible party
- Name of individual’s case manager or discharge planner
- Medical/insurance coverage
- Referring physician
For workers compensation cases, the process works a little differently and we will deal directly with the employer or employer's third party administrators.
The pre-authorization process can take up to a few days although in most instances it is within 24 hours.
