Utah Traumatic Spinal Cord (SCI) and Brain Injury Rehabilitation (TBI) Fund
“Clinical research shows that a person with a neurological injury has a better quality of life if they have access to the necessary therapy. Unfortunately, most won’t be able to afford the type of therapy needed. That’s why the SCI and TBI Rehabilitation Fund is so vital.”
Dr. Dale Hull, Neuroworx
What is the SCI/TBI Rehabilitation Fund?
The Traumatic Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Rehabilitation Fund was established during the 2012 Utah Legislative Session (Section 26-54) as a restricted special revenue fund that consists of gifts, grants, donations, or any other conveyance of money that may be made to the fund from private sources; portion ($20) of the impound fee as designated in Section 41-6a-1406; and amounts as appropriated by the legislature. The Legislature appropriated an initial allocation of $200,000 for State Fiscal Year 2013. The fund shall be administered by the executive director of the Department of Health in consultation with the advisory committee.
The SCI/TBI Rehabilitation Fund provides individuals with spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries with physical, occupational, and speech therapy; and equipment necessary for daily living activities.
The SCI/TBI Fund is designed to be a payor of last resort, meaning individuals have no other financial means available to obtain these services.
