***Each insurance has its own specific requirements so the information below is only a guide.
Patients must have a clinical diagnosis of major depressive disorder. This can be diagnosed by another provider who can place a referral to us for treatment. In many cases, we may complete an assessment to determine whether TMS is the best treatment option for you.
Most insurance companies require failure of at least 3-5 antidepressants, sometimes from multiple families of medications.

90869 – Therapeutic repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) treatment; subsequent motor threshold re-determination with delivery and management 0310T(effective 01/01/2013). Motor function mapping using non-invasive navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS) for therapeutic treatment planning, upper and lower extremity.

90868 – Therapeutic repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) treatment; subsequent delivery and management, per session.
Your insurance will not cover your copay that is required for each visit. Payment of copays are due at time of service.
Out of Network
If we are out of network for your insurance, it’s possible you can contact your insurance and ask for a single case agreement for TMS treatment. Otherwise, it will be considered out of network and coverage is likely minimal to no coverage at all. If a single case agreement is approved, you will still need to meet criteria for TMS treatment.
Treatment Without Insurance
If you choose to pay for TMS treatment out of pocket via cash or credit card you will pay the full treatment price of each visit. We do not offer sliding scale or discounted fees.
