INSURANCE


Please contact our office at 281-987-5036 to discuss insurance coverage in detail with our TMS Coordinator, Mildred.  The number of insurance companies offering coverage for NeuroStar TMS increases every few months.  In addition, many of those insurance companies who do not cover TMS, or with whom Dr. St John is not in network, cover TMS Therapy on a case-by-case basis.  

As of August 2016, the following insurance companies currently cover TMS Therapy for patients meeting the medical necessary requirements:

  • Aetna
  • Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield Federal Employee Program
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas (and many of states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Montana, Tennessee, Vermont)
  • Cigna
  • Humana
  • Magellan (BCBS HMO policies)
  • Novitas Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans
  • Premera Blue Cross
  • Tricare
  • United Healthcare (OPTUM, NOT Golden Rule)

Mildred will work with you and your insurance company to submit required documentation through any and all phases of the approval and claims process. 

If you are uninsured or your insurance company does not offer coverage, Mildred can discuss financing options with you if desired.  For those patients with insurance policies not covering TMS Therapy, we are able to provide guidance based on extensive experience if you choose to appeal your insurance company for reimbursement once treatment is complete.
