West End Psychiatry Now Offering TMS Therapy

By April 29, 2020June 22nd, 2020No Comments

West End Psychiatry Now Offering Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy may be an effective way to treat those who suffer from depression and have proven resistant to medication. TMS Therapy is a service that we have already provided at our Boise office, and we are pleased to now offer it at our West End Psychiatric office in Caldwell, Idaho.

If you would like to learn more about this procedure, we have multiple educational resources regarding TMS Therapy covering what it is, how it works, and who it’s for.

Why Providing TMS Therapy in the Western Treasure Valley is Important

The list of providers that offer TMS Therapy in the western Treasure Valley is very limited. As the valley grows, finding ways to reduce your commute becomes even more important. For those who may find it difficult or economically unfeasible to travel to Boise from Caldwell or Nampa will now be able to get the TMS Therapy they need in a much more convenient location.

As mentioned earlier, those who are not responding to or unable to tolerate traditional medication to treat their depression may reap tangible benefits that noninvasive TMS Therapy can provide. 

By providing an alternative option for those who suffer from severe depression in two different locations in the Treasure Valley, we are making TMS Therapy more accessible for those who would benefit from it most.

TMS Therapy is Cleared by FDA and Covered by Most Insurance Policies

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) cleared TMS Therapy as a treatment method for depression in 2008. This allowed insurance companies to expand on their coverage,with most policies covering TMS Therapy.

Although TMS Therapy is not a first line of treatment, it does give those who’d benefit from it another treatment path to pursue without fear of a surprise bill from your insurance company.

We encourage all of our patients to direct their specific insurance questions to their doctor. If you are in between doctors or otherwise unsure if TMS Therapy is right for you, feel free to send your insurance questions to our Reimbursement Specialist and/or see our list of insurance companies.
