Your Doctor: Your doctor whom you are working with and who is referring you to get the tms , usually is the one who gets the pre authorization and who makes the case for your insurance to pay for it (if that is in your plan to start with) . Also he will have a better idea about which local centers rank higher and he will recommend one for you.

Fairly simple: One of the first things is location. Since this is typically 30 treatments in six weeks - m-f, you want some place you can either drive to or have a short stay hotel there for six m-f periods. You can go to www.Neuronetics.Com to search all tms centers in usa who have the neurostar system installed.
Payment issues - i will have to answer this in a seperate comment. :).
