Access to services involves:

  • Physician/other professional or self referral;
  • The ability to get to the centers, programs or offices that provide services; and,
  • The ability to pay for the services by one or more methods.

The majority of people with brain-injuries enter the care system via emergency medical services or the emergency/trauma department; these assured services are often not paid by people without insurance or with limited resources.

Referral and coordination of brain injury services has improved with increased awareness, information, and improvements to the brain injury services system.
