What does the process to treatment look like?
Below is an outline of the process and timeline for beginning this treatment. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our TMS Coordinator if you have questions along the way.
STEP 1: You will complete a TMS screening, either by phone with our staff, on our website, or we will email or text you the link
STEP 2: You will be contacted by our TMS Coordinator to review your screening and determine if TMS at our clinic is right for you. If so, we will schedule a Zoom meeting with our TMS Coordinator and our TMS Medical Director.
In that meeting:
you and the TMS coordinator will go over the fundamentals of what TMS is (technology, results data, schedule, etc.)
you will speak with the TMS Medical Director to gather all the necessary information for insurance requirements and Thrive Safety standards. (NOTE: if you are already established with one of our Thrive providers, this portion may not be necessary)
you will have a financial discussion with our TMS Coordinator so you will be fully aware of any out of pocket costs (this does not mean your insurance company has approved treatment yet)
you will need to complete a couple of standard and required forms for our office
STEP 4: After your Zoom meeting, we will apply for prior authorization with your insurance company
STEP 5: Upon approval from your insurance company, a TMS Technician will call to schedule you for scheduling
STEP 6: Once you are scheduled, you will receive an email with instructions for your initial treatment and information about our mindfulness program. Please review all instructions and material sent in this email PRIOR to attending your first visit.
