At North Coast TMS we are dedicated to improving access to TMS therapy. 

In addition to daily outpatient TMS treatment sessions, TMS requires an initial assessment with our psychiatrist, as well as regular psychiatric reviews for the duration of the treatment course.

At North Coast TMS, all appointments with our psychiatrist associated with TMS therapy are bulk billed. This means you only pay for the treatment sessions. 

There are various funding streams available. Please see below and contact us for more details.

  • Medicare

    A Medicare rebate is available the for the treatment of major depression.  Specific criteria apply. 

  • Private funding

    TMS can be accessed through private funding. Psychiatrist appointments are still bulk billed.

  • Work Cover 

    TMS is often approved by patients under workers' compensation schemes. Our team is happy to assist in communicating with your insurer.

  • Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA)

    Patients with DVA Gold and White cards can access TMS without incurring any additional costs. An initial course of TMS is automatically covered, and we can help facilitate ongoing treatment approval.

  • Health Funds

    Some health insurance providers offer coverage for outpatient TMS. We recommend contacting your insurance company directly to determine if you are eligible for coverage.
