The short answer is that it depends on the patient’s insurance policy as well as the state in which the procedures will take place. As time goes on and more patients successfully undergo TMS therapy, more and more insurance companies begin to open up their policies to include TMS therapy treatment to qualified patients.
The treatment has been FDA-approved since 2008, which makes it more difficult for insurance companies to deny the effectiveness of the treatment and to deny making payments towards it. Some still try to deny the procedure, unless the patient and their doctor are able to prove that it is medically necessary for the patient to receive TMS therapy to combat treatment-resistant depression.
