TMS Therapy for Depression
Leading Connecticut & Massachusetts Provider
The darkness of depression descends on the afflicted individual like a thick dark cloud, isolating them from the reality they once knew.
While in the throes of a major depressive event, feelings of despair and hopelessness crowd out the remnants of former joy and pleasure, making the mere thought of happiness seem like a distant memory. The enormous energy needed to even get out of bed in the morning cannot be mustered, so solitude and inactivity become the daily reality of the depressed person.

Insurance Coverage for TMS
Insurance accepted for treating Depression, specifically TMS therapy, has more than doubled in the last few years, a sign that insurance companies must see cost savings in a treatment method for major depressive disorder (MDD) that works more efficiently than the traditional regimen alone. Patients who continually suffer from the debilitating effects of medication-resistant depression may acquire other health conditions as a result, such as a substance abuse disorder or unhealthy weight gain, to name a few. The fact that more and more insurance companies are providing coverage for TMS indicates a cost benefit to the insurer, thus the broadening of benefits.
The following are some of the insurance plans currently working with Achieve TMS East: Aetna, BCBS, BMC, Cigna, Commonwealth Care Alliance, Fallon Health, GIC, Harvard Pilgrim, Husky, Masshealth PCC Plan, Medicare, Neighborhood Health Plan, One Care, Tricare, Tufts Health Plan, and United Health Care.
