TMS delivers magnetic stimulation to the brain. The technique involves placement of a small coil over the head; a rapidly alternating magnetic pulse is passed through the coil wire, producing a magnetic field that passes unimpeded through the brain. This helps boost brain activity in the area of the brain responsible for depression.

TMS NW TREATMENT PATH
Determine if criteria are met for TMS treatment. This consists of a 60-90 min evaluation with a PMHNP.
If criteria for TMS treatment is met, it is very likely your insurance company will require a prior authorization. This can take 3-10 days to receive a decision.
MAPPING, MOTOR THRESHOLD & FIRST TREATMENT
Your first appointment consists of determining location, dose and then followed by a full TMS 19-min treatment.
DAILY TMS TREATMENT
You will receive 19 minute treatments Monday through Friday. Treatment may be as short as 3 weeks and up to 9 weeks, depending on client need and insurance.
A new authorization for TMS treatment can be requested from your insurance company for those clients requiring additional treatment sessions.
MEDICATION MANAGEMENT & ONGOING CARE
Even though TMS NW’s practitioners do not manage client medications long term, we can make medication adjustments as necessary throughout treatment course. Once TMS treatment is complete, clients will return back to their prescribing provider for ongoing medication management. TMS NW can also assist in finding an ongoing medication provider.
