Central Registry

BSCIP

Referrals may be called into the Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program's (BSCIP) Central Registry toll free number (1 (800) 342-0778) or may be faxed to the program ((850) 410-1975). Links to our referral forms are at the bottom of this page along with detailed instructions. Section 381.74, Florida Statutes requires that all hospitals, attending physicians, public, private, or social agencies refer all new traumatic moderate-to-severe brain or spinal cord injuries to the Central Registry. Individuals who meet the eligibility criteria and require services and supports to sustain their health and safety in the community may refer themselves to the BSCIP Central Registry. A BSCIP Case Manager or Applicant Care Coordinator representing the program will contact the reported individual within 10 working days. The case manager or applicant care coordinator will work with the individual and family to determine program eligibility and provide information about federal, state, and community resources. When appropriate and necessary, an individual community reintegration plan may be developed and implemented.

The BSCIP supports a comprehensive statewide resource center. This center maintains information on the most up-to-date information pertaining to brain and spinal cord injury, assistive technology, medical, social and financial resources, and other information. They provide linkages to related initiatives and specific information to help individuals and their families cope with injury and its aftermath.

The BSCIP also supports prevention and education activities through contracts with our community-based partners. The program supports research in brain and spinal cord injuries at the University of Florida and the University of Miami.
