What are the TSGLI Loss Standards For Hospitalization Due To Traumatic Brain Injury?
A member will be considered the TSGLI loss standards for hospitalization due to traumatic brain injury if the member has been hospitalized for 15 consecutive days as a result of a traumatic brain injury. On the 15th consecutive day of hospitalization the member may be eligible for a $25,000 TSGLI benefit payment.
Payment for hospitalization replaces the first payment period for Coma from traumatic injury AND/OR Traumatic Brain Injury resulting in inability to perform at least 2 Activities of Daily Living (ADL).
The duration of hospitalization includes dates on which member is transported from the injury site. And then admitted to the facility, transferred between facilities, and discharged from the facility.
Transporting an injured member to a hospital marks the beginning of the count of consecutive hospitalization days. Including the day of admission.
And it continues through subsequent transfers from one hospital to another. Also it would cover up to and including the day of discharge.
