Revised ICD-10-CM codes for 2019, released by the National Center for Health Statistics, took effect October 1, 2018. A handful of these changes pertain to mental disorders, and thus affect the coding of DSM-5 disorders. A crosswalk between the new ICD codes and DSM-5 codes is posted on the APA website in a printable format that can be used for easy reference.
DSM-5 contains all of the information needed to assign ICD-10-CM codes to patient diagnoses. Use ICD-10 to:
- Generate claims
- Perform eligibility and benefits verification
- Schedule office visits
- Schedule outpatient procedures
- Submit quality data
- Update patient history and problems
- Code patient encounters
