TRICARE® Insurance for Military Service Members
We believe in making depression treatment accessible to as many people as possible. That’s why we’re happy to partner with TRICARE® to offer insurance coverage for transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to service members and their families.
Effective Depression Treatment for Military Service Members
Mental health problems like depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are too common for active military personnel and veterans. The intense, stressful nature of your work—and the difficulty of talking about it with family and friends—may mean you have a hard time understanding and managing your mental health.
If you’re active military, or you’re a veteran, your risk of depression and PTSD is much higher than it is for everyone else. Depression can lead you to feel intense sadness, guilt, and shame. You might experience other symptoms too: changes in appetite, irritability, insomnia, and less enjoyment of life.
If you struggle with PTSD, you know about distressing symptoms like flashbacks, nightmares, and hypersensitivity to noise and movement. It’s difficult enough to come to terms with what you experienced on active duty. Depression and/or PTSD only make it harder.
If you’re an active military service member or veteran struggling with mental illness, it’s important to know two things:
- You are not alone.
- Help is available.
HPR Treatment Centers offers TMS therapy at locations across the U.S. Our teams work with service members and their families all the time, and we can help you start working toward a happier, healthier life.
TMS therapy works by stimulating the cells in your prefrontal cortex with electromagnetic pulses delivered by an electromagnetic coil. When prefrontal cortex cells are treated in this way, their activity levels return to normal. The cells become more effective at regulating your mood. This reduces or eliminates your symptoms of depression.
