The Texas Brain Injury Alliance reports that 144,000 Texans sustain a traumatic brain injury each year - one every 4 minutes. Centre for Neuro Skills (CNS), a premier provider of treatment for traumatic and acquired brain injury, announced today it is now a participating provider in the Political Subdivision Worker’s Compensation Alliance’s (PSWCA) direct contracting program.
Five risk pools that offer workers’ compensation coverage and claims services to public entities in Texas, representing more than 3,000 public employers and 500,000 employees, formed PSWCA in 2006. The types of public entity employers include schools, community colleges, cities, counties, community centers, water districts and other local public authorities.
“Our focus is identifying and contracting with the best quality and most efficient health care providers,” said Phil Hambrick, PSWCA’s director of provider network development. “Our goal with our participating providers, such as the Centre for Neuro Skills, is that rehabilitation therapies lead to better outcomes for injured employees.”
CNS has four locations in Texas. It recently opened its newest clinic in Austin. Other Texas CNS facilities are in Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston. All CNS clinics offer a continuum of care approach to therapeutic rehabilitation and disease management services for those recovering from traumatic and acquired brain injuries.
“What sets CNS apart is our whole team approach on patients and their caregivers,” said Paul Greenspan, AVP payor strategy at CNS. “Our entire team in Texas looks forward to working with PSWCA and providing essential rehabilitation therapies to Texas’ public entity employees who need them. We strive to ensure the best possible recovery with the goal of helping injured workers maximize their independence and improve their quality of life. Our return-to-work rates are outstanding with 56 percent of CNS patients returning to work.”
