The Epilepsy Foundation supports the VA Epilepsy Centers of Excellence (ECoE). The centers help address a critical issue facing war veterans who have experienced traumatic brain injury (TBI) – their increased likelihood of developing epilepsy. Since their formation in 2007, the ECoEs have established a national network of care for soldiers and veterans suffering with TBI, epilepsy, and seizures. This network provides specialized clinical care to veterans nationally and is active in epilepsy research and education. By reducing the need for the VA to purchase outsourced and very costly specialized care for veterans with epilepsy, the VA is able to provide more and better managed epilepsy care. The financial investment in the ECoEs has already proven cost-effective. We urge Congress to continue to invest in the VA Epilepsy Centers of Excellence.
