Insurance Coverage for TMS

Insurance accepted for treating Depression, specifically TMS therapy, has more than doubled in the last few years, a sign that insurance companies must see cost savings in a treatment method for major depressive disorder (MDD) that works more efficiently than the traditional regimen alone. Patients who continually suffer from the debilitating effects of medication-resistant depression may acquire other health conditions as a result, such as a substance abuse disorder or unhealthy weight gain, to name a few. The fact that more and more insurance companies are providing coverage for TMS indicates a cost benefit to the insurer, thus the broadening of benefits.


The following are some of the insurance plans currently working with Achieve TMS Central: Aetna, Cigna, Humana, Medicaid (Iowa Total Care and Amerigroup), Midlands Choice, Optum (United Health Care), and Wellmark BCBS. If you don’t see your plan listed, please call and ask us about yours today.
