GUIDE TO USING DSM-5 IN THE TRANSITION TO ICD-10 AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATIONIf I have a DSM-5, do I need to purchase an ICD-10 to identify correct billing codes? No. If you are a behavioral health provider, DSM-5 should remain your primary resource. It is a tool that provides you with diagnostic criteria and corresponding ICD-10 codes (in parentheses).
Information below is for future updates:Does the U.S. Oﬃcially recognize DSM-5 for use in identifying ICD-10 codes? Yes. The National Center for Health Statistics and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) oversee the oﬃcial implementation of ICD-10 in the U.S. CMS has posted the following on its website: “ DSM-5 contains the standard criteria and definitions of mental disorders now approved by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), and it also contains both ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes (in parentheses) selected by APA. Since DSM-IV only contains ICD-9-CM codes, it will cease to be recognized for criteria or coding for services with dates of service of October 1, 2015 or later. Updates for DSM-5 criteria and their associated ICD-10-CM codes (identified by APA) will be found at www.dsm5.org.” See more at the following CMS web page: http://1.usa.gov/1vqmdZP
A free webinar with in-depth information about the transition is available at the American Psychiatric Association’s website: www.psychiatry.org/ICD10transition There also are several resources available via the DSM-5 website at www.dsm5.org. You are encouraged to visit this site often as updates in coding and other resources are often added.
