Geisinger Health Plan, offering medical coverage in Pennsylvania, recently announced that BrainsWay’s depression treatment threpay will be now be covered under their insurance policies. This coverage applies to over half a million beneficiaries. From The Health Plan website:
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has been proposed as a treatment for depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders. It relies on the use of an electrical coil placed on the scalp to generate a magnetic field which in turn is thought to induce electrical currents in the brain. This noninvasive form of stimulation when used over the left prefrontal cortex is thought to have antidepressant properties.
