Post-acute rehabilitation services (PARS) for traumatic brain injury (TBI) and traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI) are advanced rehabilitation services provided through an interdisciplinary team approach. For residential services, the participant must have a TBI or have a TBI with a TSCI and for a non-residential setting, the participant may have a TBI or TSCI. For outpatient therapy services, the participant must have a TBI or a TSCI.
Services that are provided are based on an assessment of the individual's deficits. The goal is to achieve independence in the home and community and establish new patterns of cognitive activity or compensatory mechanisms. HHSC Rate Analysis sets PARS rates and can be located here.
