Rocky Mountain Hyperbaric Association for Brain Injuries’ HBOT for Brain Injuries program assists those who qualify with small grants to help pay for HBOT treatments.
At any given time, up to 20% of the American population under age 50 years is unable to work due to temporary illness or disability. 17% of children under 18 years of age have developmental disabilities that result in substantial financial and social costs. 18% of Americans have some disability, with 12% presenting a severe disability. Children with neurological injuries or impairment cost, on average, 2.1 times as much to educate as non-injured children. Early treatment could reduce the cost of education of special needs children by as much as $55.7 billion dollars every year, not to mention cost savings in health and related expense. Assistance in receiving hyperbaric treatment is invaluable to those who currently drive at least two hours to the nearest major medical treatment facilities. Cost in seeking treatment is prohibitive for many, particularly considering modest wages for workers, lost work for those seeking medical assistance, expense of medical treatments and costs of travel and lodging for patients receiving repeat treatments. The HBOT for Brain Injuriest Fund assists those who need financial assistance for HBOT treatments.
