Title: New DSM Coding
Post by: Angie on September 05, 2013, 10:57:58 AM
Can you tell me if the new DSM coding will need to be used to submit claims with? It is my understanding that they are not reimbursable and that the ICD9-10 codes will need to be used to submit claims with.
Is that correct?

Yes, that's true, ICD-10 will be same as ICD-9. In mental health there are actually over 45 diagnosis in the DSM that are not reimbursable, I had clients ditch their DSM books a long time ago.
