Who We Serve & Paying for Services
Who We Serve
We serve adults with a diagnosis of major depressive disorder (recurrent, severe, or single episode – severe).
Paying for TMS Services
Sheppard Pratt’s outpatient TMS services participate with many forms of commercial insurance, as well as Medicare and Maryland Medicaid. We also accept self-pay patients/patients who choose to pay for services without using insurance.
Most forms of insurance have the following eligibility requirements for covering TMS:
- Current primary diagnosis of major depressive disorder – recurrent, severe, or single episode – severe
- A history of failing or not responding to 2 or more psychopharmacological treatments for depression, such as SSRIs, SNRIs, tricyclic antidepressants, or others
- A history of evidence-based psychotherapy
