About Insurance Coverage For TMS
The number of healthcare companies that cover Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy has been on the rise. More and more providers are recognizing the effectiveness and benefits of TMS treatment for depression. Coverage for TMS therapy for other ailments and disorders will likely be extended in the coming years, too, as numerous studies are being performed which indicate a variety of beneficial applications. Currently, TMS therapy is most often covered for people with Major Depressive Disorder who have tried at least 4 antidepressants—along with psychotherapy—without success. Some companies will also cover those who have tried antidepressants and had adverse side effects. Below is a list of healthcare companies that currently offer TMS coverage. Please note that this list changes, as do the criteria that must be met for TMS treatment.
