An Advanced Treatment for Depression
TMS of Central Florida is a NeuroStar practice devoted to helping patients overcome depression with a non-invasive therapy that uses targeted magnetic pulses to stimulate underactive areas of the brain.
TMS stands for “Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation” — a non-drug treatment for major depression. TMS uses focused magnetic pulses, similar to an MRI, to non-invasively (without surgery) stimulate the brain and treat major depression. This magnetic field stimulates neurons and has been proven to provide depression relief. Patients being treated with TMS do not require anesthesia or sedation. They remain awake and alert and return to work or their daily routine immediately after each treatment.
TMS is a very affordable treatment for depression. In fact, TMS therapy is covered by most major insurance plans. Depending on your plan, estimated costs may vary between plans and some may require a copay for treatment.
Since every plan is different, and TMS is all we do, the insurance team at TMS of Central Florida is experienced at helping you understand the exact coverage available to you in your plan so there are no surprises.
The best way to determine if NeuroStar TMS is right for you is by speaking with your doctor or a referring psychiatrist. In most cases, general requirements will need to be met prior to receiving TMS therapy:
You are currently diagnosed with treatment-resistant major depressive disorder by a psychiatrist, physician, or qualified healthcare professional
There is no foreign metal in the head or metallic/magnetic implants (most dental work is safe)
Coverage is really up to your individual insurance plan so the best option is to work with our insurance specialist to determine your exact level of coverage. Most plans cover TMS therapy, with some requiring a traditional copay. Some plans require additional criteria to be met in order to qualify for coverage such as:
A diagnosis of depression from a medical doctor
Documented attempts at resolving depression with antidepressants with no improvement
A history of therapy or counseling by a licensed professional
No history of seizures or seizure disorder
