Finding Value

Value of TBI Treatment

Neuro Community Care is proud to report that 70% of those clients surveyed reported an improved or stable quality of life according to the 2018-2019 WHOQOL (World Health Organization Quality of Life) survey results. 

NCC can help by reducing hospital/rehabilitation admissions, maximizing independence to allow for a return to work when appropriate and providing supportive services to improve overall quality of life. 

Impact of TBI Related Injuries

$76.5 Billion

The approximate annual economic burden of TBI in the United States.

$68.6 Billion

Direct expenditures of hospitalizations and/or fatality-related costs due to TBI.

2.5 Million

There were over 2.5 million TBI-related Emergency room visits in 2014.


Approximately 288,000 TBI-related hospitalizations occur annually.

  • Lifetime costs for one person surviving a severe TBI can reach $4 million

  • Acute rehabilitation costs for survivors of a severe TBI have been shown to average about $1,000 a day and the average stay is about 55 days.

  • Average costs rise dramatically for those individuals who undergo rehabilitation.  In one study, after a 4-year followup, average costs for medical and long-term care services averaged $196,460 for survivors receiving rehabilitation services compared to $17,893 for those receiving no rehabilitation.

  • This does not account for the intangible costs borne by the families and friends of individuals who die prematurely from brain injury. For injured persons and their loved ones, the physical and emotional tolls from permanent disability are profound and impossible to quantify.  

Neuro Community Care can assist by providing a valuable service in the client’s preferred setting. Services rendered in the community are far less expensive than facilities and reducing the length of stay in the hospital or rehab can create immense cost savings. After a costly hospital or rehabilitation stay, supporting clients in their own communities and homes is vastly more economical and comfortable. Clients will have the ability to utilize skills learned in rehab in their natural setting with the support of their CSS. Our goal is to keep clients active within their own communities in an effort to reduce rehospitalization or readmission to a costly inpatient program. Both the cost savings and client/family satisfaction both provide immense value after recovering from a neurological condition.
