Webinar: Transitioning to DSM-5 and ICD-10-CM

Free Webinar and Continuing Medical Education
Transitioning to DSM-5 and ICD-10-CM
Tuesday, July 8, 2014 | 3-4:30 p.m. Eastern Time
The Fifth Edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), developed by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), is the compendium of mental disorder criteria and diagnostic codes used by clinicians in the U.S. health care system. Since its release in May 2013, clinicians and outside organizations have expressed to the APA and SAMHSA a need to know more about DSM-5's approach to diagnostic coding.
This knowledge is critical, as International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes are reported to insurance companies for the purposes of providing reimbursement for clinical services. Clinicians need to understand and appropriately use DSM-5 codes in order to avoid barriers to or delays in treatment. This program will help clinicians to better understand the coding changes in DSM-5; how DSM-5's approach is similar to and differs from that in DSM-IV; the rationale behind the revisions; and specific clinical implications.
By the end of the program, participants will be able to:
  • Explain the ways in which the ICD coding structure of DSM-5 compares to that of DSM-IV.
  • Identify the different uses of DSM-5's ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes.
  • Describe specific coding corrections that have occurred post-publication that clinicians should implement in patient care.
Only the first 1,000 registrants will be able to take part in the webinar. Note that the webinar will be viewable at after July 8.
