The Winston-Salem (NC) Journal (5/12, Craver, 215K) reported the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services received approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to launch a pilot program under Medicare to address traumatic brain injuries. The program will provide rehabilitation services for nearly 50 adults in four counties who incurred a traumatic brain injury on or after turning 22 years old.
