DSM-5 and ICD 10 Conversion and CORRECTIONS

October 1, 2015 marks the full transition from DSM-IV-TR codes to the full adoption of DSM-5 codes for diagnosis and billing.  Additionally, DSM codes will now align with the ICD-10 Codes (International Classification of Disease -10) on October 1, 2015. We have recently learned that there are approximately 70 F-code errors in all DSM-5 manuals printed and purchased before March of 2014.  If you purchased your DSM-5 before March 2014, the American Psychiatric Association has printed an addendum with the corrected codes which can be downloaded.
