There are so many resources out there, including this site, the sites for each type of TMS chair, YouTube videos, and published articles. Learn more about how TMS works and see if it is the right fit for you.
Contact your insurance provider to see if TMS is covered. Typically, there are prerequisites to coverage, such as having previously tried at least three types of depression medications and talk therapy. Don’t get overwhelmed with this step: your TMS office can help you here.
3. Find a Provider
Using our tool or your own resources, find a provider in your area that offers TMS and that accepts your insurance provider. They will likely set up an initial screening call or meeting to ensure they’re the right fit for you.
4. Talk to Your Psychiatrist:
Check in with your psychiatrist (if you’re seeing one) to see if they think TMS is the right course of action for you. If you aren’t seeing one, your TMS office can help you connect with one.
5. Ask Questions:
There are many resources available for you to ask questions and receive answers, namely the TMS.org forum and Facebook groups about TMS. Your TMS office is also prepared to help answer any questions you may have. Ask any and all questions so you can feel confident about your TMS treatment!
