Great News: Anthem/BCBS Now Covers TMS!

We are pleased to announce that one of the largest regional health insurance companies now provides TMS coverage. Anthem/BCBS covers Colorado and thirteen other states. This is a policy change for Anthem. In the past, Anthem considered rTMS “experimental”. As of August 1, 2012, Anthem’s updated policy recognizes rTMS as “medically necessary” if certain other treatments have been tried and failed.

We are hopeful that coming months will be marked by additional insurance companies deciding to provide coverage for this important treatment for depression.
