After a patient suffers an injury to the brain, whether from a traumatic accident, a stroke, a brain tumor, or other source, it is often necessary to undergo a structured rehabilitation program to prepare for the transition back to a productive and satisfying life. Although Conemaugh Rehabilitation Outpatient Clinics cannot heal a brain injury, staff will provide tools to adapt to cognitive, emotional, and behavioral problems that can be present after a brain injury.
Each treatment plan is designed to meet the individualized needs of the patient and may focus on personal safety in the community, interacting with others, goal-setting, money management, or vocational evaluation and training. This can include educational support, job placement, or on-site job coaching to help patients return to work or school. Skills are practiced and strategies are taught to improve function and/or compensate for remaining deficits.
Therapy is typically covered by most health insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid. Most managed care health plans require pre-authorization prior to treatment. A prescription is needed from the patient's primary care physician.
