FACT: TMS is covered by most insurance plans for the diagnosis of major depressive disorder when a patient has not responded to traditional forms of treatment, such as medications and therapy. Some insurance plans are now covering TMS for other conditions, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). There are a few TMS clinics that do not accept insurance and the treatment can range from $5,000 to $10,000 depending on a number of variables, such as treatment protocol, experience, etc.
