Until very recently, no one agency or system of care was identified as the lead agency to address the care and treatment of Persons with TBI, and the limited amount of services available has been fragmented. Acute care following a head injury is available in 21 hospitals in the state, and in medical clinics in nearly every village. There are limited rehabilitation services available, and those that exist are primarily in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau. Some rehabilitation is provided in out-of-state facilities. Funding for rehabilitation services primarily comes from Vocational Rehabilitation, Workman’s Compensation, and private insurance. Due to the limitation of these funding sources, rehabilitation tends to be brief, with very little long-term care provided. Little is done to address the cognitive, behavioral, and emotional manifestations of a traumatic brain injury in any comprehensive or sustained manner.
