Home and Community Based TBI Program
Providing choices and support for individuals who have experienced a brain injury.
The Traumatic Brain Injury Medicaid Waiver Program
The Traumatic Brain Injury Waiver program is a special Medicaid funded program for
income eligible adults who have been diagnosed with a Traumatic Brain Injury, and
who without waiver services would have to live in a residential long term care facility.
The program pays for services such as Service Coordination, Home and Community Support
assistance, respite care, vocational support, housing support, and other services
that are necessary to keep the individual living in the community.
The goal of the Home and Community Based TBI program is to assist the individuals
with brain injuries to be in control of their lives and to live as independently
as possible in the community. Our specially trained professionals offer compassionate
service and peace of mind to our TBI clients and their families by providing a comprehensive
network of services and support.
