Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) therapy has been added to the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) for eligible patients diagnosed with treatment-resistant major depressive disorder. Patients over the age of 18 years who have tried at least two classes of antidepressants but remained unwell, and have not received TMS therapy previously, are eligible for the ~75% rebate.

Individuals who do not meet the Medicare criteria can still receive treatment but will not receive a rebate by Medicare.

TMS is fully covered under both DVA and WorkCover.
