Tricare TMS Coverage In CA
We proudly offer veterans throughout Southern California access to TMS therapy through Tricare coverage. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a cutting-edge treatment for mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and more. Tricare may cover TMS therapy for active duty armed forces, veterans, and their families.
Tricare is the primary health insurance program for the U.S. Department of Defense Military Health System offered through the Defense Health Agency (DHA). Tricare insurance has offered coverage for patients experiencing persistent symptoms of major depressive disorder (MDD) since 2016. Tricare West is the region that California residents are within, which offers limited benefit coverage. Because of this, accessing TMS therapy through your Tricare insurance policy requires prior authorization. To expedite the authorization process, providers may submit a Letter of Attestation form.
As a mental health resource, we want you to know that we are a support system for you. We handle all the paperwork for you. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have about TMS and the treatment process, and thank you for your service.
Understand The Benefits Of TMS
Transcranial magnetic stimulation is an outpatient treatment option that is non-invasive with minimal side effects. TMS requires no additional medications and may be used in conjunction with your current medications if recommended by a mental health professional. This treatment is ideal for individuals dealing with persistent symptoms or those who want to avoid taking prescription medications.
Each patient that visits us receives a custom treatment plan that suits their needs. All individuals respond to TMS at different rates, however, patients may begin to feel positive effects in as little as a few weeks. TMS therapy occurs while the patient is awake, requiring no anesthesia and allowing you to live life to the fullest after sessions.
