What type(s) of TMS do we offer at the Center for Cognitive Brain Health at USP?
At CCBH, we offer deep TMS as part of the Brainsway TMS system, which has been FDA-approved for the use of deep TMS for both treatment-resistant depression and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Deep TMS has also been used to effectively treat several other conditions ranging from anxiety to ADHD to smoking cessation.
Is TMS covered by Insurance?
The Center for Cognitive Brain Health at USP is out-of-network with most insurance companies except Medicare. If you have out-of-network benefits, insurance companies will likely cover TMS therapy for depression if:
- You are diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder
- You’ve tried at least 2 -4 different antidepressants along with psychotherapy, without success
Medicare will also cover TMS therapy if you meet the above criteria.
It is important to note that other insurance companies can be very meticulous when assessing coverage for TMS therapy. If our clinicians think you are a potential candidate for TMS, we will contact your insurance company to verify that they will cover your TMS treatment. Coverage varies per insurance company and it can take some time (days to weeks) to receive approval. We suggest making an appointment as soon as possible so that the process can be put into motion. Call us at 212-335-2100 to make an appointment or to learn more about TMS.
