TMS for Other Conditions
TMS is an effective treatment for many conditions. The FDA has cleared TMS for treatment of Major Depressive Disorder. Most all insurance companies now cover TMS treatment for this condition. What about for other conditions?
While special prior authorization may be needed, treatment of Major Depression in the following situations is now considered routine, although it falls outside the original FDA clearance. We can work to secure insurance company approval in the following situations, although some insurance companies are less flexible than others:
- Major Depressive Disorder in Pregnancy
- Major Depressive Disorder in Adolescents
The following conditions can be helped by TMS but are not considered “On Label” and thus insurance company support for treatment is may not be available. Each condition requires special placement of the coils and the sessions involved may be as few as 5 or 10 instead of the 30 required by Major Depression Disorder treatment. Please contact us for details and special pricing for some of these off-label indications.
- Depression in Bipolar Disease
- Chronic Pain
- Stopping smoking or nicotine addiction
- Stopping cocaine addiction
- Recovery of speech after stroke
- Stopping Hallucinations in Schizophrenia
- Reducing Social Isolation and Withdrawal in Schizophrenia
The team at The Southern Colorado TMS Center, LLC, is excited and proud to be part of these developments. As the region’s leading and most experienced provider of TMS, we plan to stay on the leading edge of making these treatment innovations available to our region.
