    Medicare said they will no longer pay for treatments that 3 doctors said i needed. Medicare said it makes no difference and denied my treatments Without the treatments i am unable to work at my job or at home. They are the only thing to fight this as my condition, PLS, keeps the treatments from working more than 2 months.
    I could use a few prayers. Thanks



    I just recently completed 36 tms treatments — and now the dr is recommending – 15 booster treatments
    however my insurance won’t even consider it.
    I dont’ t get it… im still on anti depressants
    im still depressed
    I still think that I don’t care if wake up tomorrow morning
    if I knew I could accomplish what I tried to do 5 years ago – and that was an overdose- I would have done it by now
    I do think about it….but I don’t think I would do that again because here I am – and I don’t want to end up in a psych ward for depression
    I want to get HELP!!!
    im afraid to try to end my life again for fear that it wont work
    although I think of many other ways that it can be accomplished.
    damn these insurance rules….



    My husband is taking TMS treatments and this is 2nd time was scheduled for 36 but insurance (Medicare) will only pay for 20 so I have been talking to Drs office and am trying to work out a payment plan. The treatments were working and he needs to continue with them. Very worried. It’s sad when something is helping and insurance won’t continue to pay but will pay for expensive medication.



    The same thing happened with my brother too. But on consulting the experts who helped and guided us on clearing the basic of each and every plan made us realise that we were expecting more on just a basic plan. Then after, as suggested by our doctor and insurers too, we ought to buy Medigap plan G insurance and got all the facilities which we were looking for. If you want you can also contact the same team through this website and can get the details of all the Medicare insurance plan.


    i’m no expert in this but i’d like to share what my psychiatrist who’s been working on TMS for 12 years told me about insurance. if you appeal as a medical emergency and send in all records of failed treatments or notes from therapy sessions, they should approve it. they basically have to chose whether they want to pay a hospital bill or for the treatment. that’s how i got my insurance to cover. if you have a psychiatrist ask them what steps they normally take to appeal an insurance companies decision.i hope this helps a bit, and if not i hope there’s another way for it to be covered!
