Medicare Insurance For TMS Therapy
Does Medicare insurance cover TMS therapy?
A Better Way Psychiatry and TMS clinic accepts Medicare to treat certain conditions. Medicare is a federal health insurance program for individuals aged 65 years and older. We work with them to make sure that your Medicare insurance covers TMS therapy. Individuals with treatment-resistant depression no longer need to rely on antidepressant medications alone for relief. TMS is a cutting-edge alternative to traditional treatment methods and has few side effects. Although getting TMS can be an expensive process, we are working hard to increase access to the service in the Orange County area. Visit us for a consultation appointment to see if your insurance company will cover TMS treatments for all or a portion of the cost.
As TMS has grown in popularity and been recognized as a successful treatment option, Medicare has expanded its coverage of the treatment. TMS is a particularly good fit for patients who have tried other depression treatments and experienced persistent symptoms of their conditions. You must be 18 years or older to get TMS therapy and have it covered by an insurance company.

What is transcranial magnetic stimulation?
TMS is a safe and effective treatment option for major depressive disorder (MDD) and anxiety. It uses both magnetic fields and magnetic pulses to stimulate the brain and improve its function. As you undergo treatments, you will notice gradual results over time. Most patients get treatment for a timeline of about seven weeks, but your personal plan could be longer or shorter than that.
When you visit us to learn more about transcranial magnetic stimulation, we can answer any questions you have about the treatment. With our Medicare-approved physicians and healthcare workers, you will be in great hands. We will also go in-depth with you about the costs and your insurance coverage so that there are no surprise expenses later on.
