TMS Therapy Insurance Coverage
Since the FDA clearance of TMS in 2008, insurance coverage for eligible patients has increased significantly. Currently, there are over 60 coverage polices for TMS, including most Medicare contractors. Although TMS is not a first line of treatment, it is an alternative option for those who are not responding to or cannot tolerate medications. Patients are encouraged to speak directly with their doctor regarding any specific insurance questions. Patients can also contact a reimbursement specialist and receive assistance with understanding insurance coverage and verifying insurance benefits.
