Things to Consider


Whether you're interested in learning more about TMS, or it's been recommended to you, there are some things to consider before moving forward. For some, it's an excited next step in their mental health journey. For others, it can be overwhelming. Don't let that stop you from learning more. Here are some things to consider when pursuing TMS.

Is TMS a safe treatment option for you?
With your help, we will determine if you are eligible to receive TMS services based on a review of your medical and mental health history.

When is the right time to do TMS?
There's no right answer to this- but we advise patients to be aware of and prepare for significant time commitment when pursuing TMS. In general, there are 36 total appointments that are scheduled for about 8-9 weeks. The first 30 treatment sessions are scheduled 5 days a week (Monday through Friday) for the first 6 weeks, with the remaining 6 treatment sessions scheduled over the following 2-3 weeks. 

What is the cost for TMS?
Once we determine TMS is right for you, we discuss one of two options for financial coverage. If you qualify, we will submit a prior authorization request to your insurance carrier for coverage of TMS. Please note that depending on your plan, there may be a portion of the cost that you are responsible for (e.g. copay, deductible, coinsurance). If TMS is right for you but your insurance carrier does not authorize coverage for treatments, we do offer a private, cash payment plan.  Contact us for more information regarding financial coverage.
