Study evaluated annual trends in charges and lengths of stay for patients with brain injury in acute care and inpatient rehabilitation settings over a 7 year period. Average daily rehabilitation charges and acute care charges increased each year while length of stay decreased, with annual reductions averaging 2.25 days.
