TMS Fees and Medicare

In November 2021 Medicare introduced partial rebates for patients receiving TMS for treatment-resistant depression. Sessions are now largely covered by Medicare for eligible patients, making TMS a viable and affordable option for everyday Australians.

Currently, patients receiving TMS treatment for depression are eligible for Medicare rebates if they:

  • Are 18+ years old
  • Have previously tried at least 2 classes of antidepressants in the past (without significant benefits)
  • Have not had TMS treatment before.

Medicare offers partial rebates for eligible patients for up to 35 sessions (initial acute course), followed by 15 maintenance sessions (4+ months after the acute course) for those patients who have shown improvement following the acute course but subsequently relapsed.

Unfortunately rebates for other conditions are not currently available, although we hope this will change in the future. Individuals who do not meet the Medicare criteria can still receive treatment but will not receive a rebate by Medicare.

Please note: The value and conditions of the rebates provided by Medicare are regulated by Medicare and therefore subject to change.
