At SimplePractice, we spend a lot of time thinking about our customers. Our goal is to provide you with software that’s flexible enough to run your unique practice in the way you want, yet we don't want to overwhelm you with too many buttons, menus, features, and options.
In this first version of the ICD-10 list in SimplePractice, we've chosen not to include all 69,000+ ICD-10 codes because we know this might be overwhelming. If you find that you need a code that isn’t listed, just let us know and we’ll get it added for you.
As it stands, we’ve included every ICD-10 code indicated in the DSM-5 that are included on CMS.gov. These may differ from the DSM book.
Where are the ICD-10 codes in the DSM-5?
You can find ICD-10 codes in the back of your DSM-5. You'll see an alphabetical list of diagnoses you've been using with ICD-9 codes. In this list, the DSM has mapped each of these diagnoses to the appropriate ICD-10 code. This is the basis for version 1 of the ICD-10 list in SimplePractice.
Most experts agree that this DSM-5 list of ICD-10 codes will (at least for now) be the primary ones that payers require for reimbursement and documentation. But no one (insurance payers included) has a definitive list of the ICD-10 codes behavioral health providers should use.
For this reason, we’ll continue to add ICD-10 codes to the list in your account as we learn which you are using successfully. We are monitoring this situation closely to provide you with the best list of ICD-10 codes available.
We're making SimplePractice for you, so if there are codes you need that aren't available in the first version of our ICD-10 list, contact us and we’ll be happy to add them.
