On Average, How Much Does Brain Injury Treatment And Rehab Cost In Washington D.C.? What Are My Options To Pay For Them?

If you’re in an accident that caused a head or brain injury, the last thing you want to worry about is money. Unfortunately, although hospitals all around D.C., including MedStar Rehabilitation Hospital, are creating and using new treatments everyday, they all come with a price tag.

The cost of these treatments—although necessary for your wellbeing and recovery—can be extremely expensive. If your insurance company won’t cover them, you’ll have to decide between much needed treatment or your life savings.

Depending on your injury, treatments can vary in cost as well as whether or not your insurance company will approve them. On average, the lifetime cost for care, treatment and rehabilitation for a traumatic brain injury can reach up to $4,000,000. Without help from your insurance company, you will have to pay that cost out of your own pocket. Some of the treatments included in this cost are:

  • Initial hospitalization. Anywhere from $200 to $10,000
  • Pain medications. $10 to $1,200 per prescription
  • MRIs and CT Scans. $1,000 to $3,000 each
  • Surgeries. $30,000 to $150,000 each
  • Therapy and counseling, Speech, occupational, cognitive, or behavioral therapy costs range from $100 to $1,000 per session
  • 24-Hour Care. $150 to $400 per day
