Medicare is a form of federal health insurance available primarily to elderly folks over the age of 65, first established back when Lyndon Johnson was the President of the United States. Currently, Medicare does cover TMS therapy treatment in patients with Medicare who are suffering from depression. It is necessary to keep alert for any potential changes in coverage in Medicare from year to year, but because TMS therapy continues to prove itself over time, it is unlikely that Medicare will cease coverage of the treatment.
There are also many TMS therapy practitioners available throughout the country who accept Medicare as a form of insurance. This means American patients with Medicare should have little difficulty finding a center that will provide treatment for a low, affordable cost. Compared to patients on other forms of insurance, patients with Medicare save a substantial amount per treatment and overall, saving thousands of dollars over 30 sessions.
