Health insurance benefits are inadequate to meet all of a brain injury or spinal cord injury patient’s needs after discharge and very few patients with serious injuries have the financial resources to pay for their significant medical expenses and health care needs. It is important that you call for an eligibility determination and an investigation of the cause of your accident as soon as possible after your trauma. The goal is to provide advocacy, private funding, and to return patients with brain and/or spinal cord injuries to independence. See Major Victories
Frequently Asked Questions about Private Funding® for Traumatic Brain Injuries and Spinal Cord Injuries
Why should families use Private Funding?
Private health insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid are inadequate to meet all of a brain injury or
spinal cord injury patient’s needs.
Where does Private Funding come from?
Third party private companies will advance funding to eligible claimants to pay for needed supports and services.
What types of accidents may be eligible for Private Funding?
The following causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI)
may be eligible for Private Funding:
Swimming pool accidents
Motor vehicle accidents
Tractor Trailer accidents
Vehicle Rollover accidents
Work place accidents
Slip and fall accidents
All-terrain vehicles (ATV)
Defective helmet injuries
How is eligibility determined?
My investigators and experts examine the facts and circumstances of a particular case to identify whether there is a party or parties responsible for the disabling, traumatic injury. Private Funding is a financial bridge from the time that your injury occurred until successful completion of your settlement or verdict.
How is the money repaid to the third party private company?
If your claim is successfully resolved, the third party private company is repaid out of the proceeds from the settlement. If your case is unsuccessful, the money advanced by the third party company does not have to be repaid.
If I accept Private Funding, will I still be eligible for governmental benefits?
Yes, receipt of Private Funding does not affect eligibility for governmental benefits such as Medicaid, SSI, Medicare,
Home and Community Based Waiver programs and worker’s compensation.
