Does UHC Cover TMS Therapy? What You Should Know

Seeing UHC covers TMS Therapy

Understanding TMS Therapy

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a groundbreaking, non-invasive therapy used to treat Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and other conditions when traditional treatments haven’t worked. It uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain, focusing on areas involved in mood control and depression. The treatment is gaining recognition for its effectiveness and lack of severe side effects, offering hope to those who haven’t found relief through medications or psychotherapy.

UnitedHealthcare Coverage for TMS Therapy

UnitedHealthcare (UHC), including its Optum health services platform, offers coverage for TMS therapy under certain conditions. To qualify, patients generally need to be 18 years or older, have a diagnosis of severe major depressive disorder, have not responded adequately to at least two antidepressants, and have gone through an unsuccessful trial of psychotherapy. Recent policy updates from UHC have made it easier for patients to access TMS therapy by reducing the number of required failed medication trials from four to two and eliminating the necessity for a psychotherapy trial.
