TMS TRICARE Coverage
Exciting news for active military and ex-military personnel! TRICARE covers transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) on an outpatient basis, allowing thousands of veterans, active military personnel, and their families to receive state-of-the-art mental health treatment.
TRICARE Health Insurance is a plan issued by the United States’ Defense Health Agency (DHA) and offered to military personnel.
In 2014, TRICARE considered TMS to be a proven treatment for major depressive disorder. And in 2016, TRICARE started providing coverage for TMS therapy.
TRICARE West covers TMS as a limited benefit, meaning that prior authorization is required. To expedite this review, providers may submit a Letter of Attestation form for TMS — which can be found here.
Brain Health Hawaii can help this process by including the patient’s information, providing a diagnosis, and the medical necessity information.
