Goods and services related to a person’s traumatic brain injury (TBI) or traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI), which are not outpatient therapy services and are not delivered as part of inpatient comprehensive medical rehabilitation services or post-acute rehabilitation services, are considered ancillary. Ancillary services are preauthorized by CRS counselors according to CRS policy, and are reimbursed according to the reimbursement methodology described in 1 TAC §355.9040. These services may include durable medical equipment, orthotics, prosthetics, assistive technology devices, medications, medical equipment and supplies, home modifications, transportation that is required to enable participation in a CRS approved service, and paraprofessional services that are required to enable participation in therapy sessions to assist with meeting treatment goals and independence in the home and community.
