Healthcare utilization and costs of Veterans screened and assessed for traumatic brain injury

Kevin T. Stroupe, PhD, et al.

Over 12 mo following their initial evaluation, Veterans screening positive on a traumatic brain injury (TBI) clinical reminder had over 85 percent higher total costs than Veterans who screened negative. Understanding healthcare utilization and cost patterns following TBI screening is important for policymakers as they address the ongoing and future healthcare needs of returning Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom Veterans.
