Is TMS Therapy Covered By Insurance?

As TMS continues to produce positive therapeutic results, insurance coverage broadens substantially.

Insurers have been coming on board in droves—adding TMS coverage to millions of policies nationwide—as mounting data continues to validate the efficacy of TMS treatment for depression. There are variations among the different insurance carriers regarding what specific criteria must be met in order to qualify for coverage, so check with your plan to determine eligibility. Generally, the qualifying criteria include one or more of the following:

Failure to respond to pharmacologic antidepressant treatments

Failure to respond to additional augmentation strategies, and

Failure to respond to some form of psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy.

The following are some of the insurance plans currently working with Achieve TMS Central

Insurance accepted for Depression Treatment, specifically TMS therapy, has more than doubled in the last few years, a sign that insurance companies must see cost savings in a treatment method for major depressive disorder (MDD) that works more efficiently than the traditional regimen. Patients who continually suffer from the debilitating effects of medication-resistant depression may acquire other health conditions as a result, such as a substance abuse disorder or unhealthy weight gain, to name a few. The fact that more and more insurance companies are providing coverage for TMS indicates a cost benefit to the insurer, thus the broadening of benefits.
