    Hi there, Phil. 

    I hope your Tuesday has been splendid so far! Thanks for sending this over our way so we can add this to our system for you.

    I'm going to forward this request over for ICD-10 code "H90.5-Unspecified sensorineural hearing loss" as well as "H90- Conductive hearing loss, bilateral" to our Product Specialist to get these codes added to our system and we'll let you know if we need anything else from you in the meantime. 

    If there are any additional codes you need, please let me know so we can get them added for you.

    Hi Melinda,

     

    When will we be getting the new DSM "substance use disorder" codes?  For example, "Alcohol use disorder" now replaces "Alcohol abuse" and "Alcohol dependence".

     

    Thanks,

    KC.

    Hi Katrina, 

    Great question. We have ICD-10 codes in SimplePractice now because that's what insurances currently accept. Our goal at SimplePractice is always to get you paid.

    The DSM-V translates all DSM diagnosis codes into ICD-10 codes in a reference table in the back of the DSM-V. I'd recommend using this to match up DSM diagnoses with ICD-10 diagnoses!

    For example, I see that F10.10 is listed as "Alcohol Abuse, uncomplicated"

    If there are ever any ICD-10 codes that you find are out-of-date or unbillable, please reach out to us so we can get them updated- we need you to get paid for the hard work that you do! : )

    Hey Feeby, 

    I went ahead and forwarded the request to add "Z02.1- Encounter for pre-employment examination" to our Product Team. Keep your eyes out for that to be added within the next couple days or so! 

     

    Have a great one!

    I can only enter F17.20 for unspecified nicotine dependence in SP.  But when I get to the claim form, it makes me change it to F17.200, which is unavailable in SP.  Which one should I use?

    Hi Katrina, 

    Good eye!
    I can understand how odd it must have been receiving that scrub error for a non-billable code. I'm currently seeing that the correct, billable code according to ICD10data.com is F17.200- Nicotine dependence, unspecified, uncomplicated.

    I'm going to forward this to our Product Lead to get this changed for you. Please keep in mind it may take a couple of days for this new code to take effect, but if there's anything I can help with in the meantime, please let me know : )

    I'm not able to add a V-code to a clients note?? Is this because they are reimbursable by insurance? Our practice is out of pocket and I would like to have an accurate representation of wheat we are working on in session if it fits best as a V-code, even if not reimbursable....

    aren't reimbursable is what I meant

    Carly, I have the same issue.  I need DSM-5 codes for accurate diagnoses, not what the insurance wants me to say it is.

    Hi Carly and Dawn, currently in SimplePractice we have only ICD-10 codes to ensure that our customers are being reimbursed by insurance payers. The DSM-V translates all DSM diagnosis codes into ICD-10 codes in a reference table in the back of the DSM-V- you can use this to match up DSM diagnoses with ICD-10 diagnoses!

    Hi there!

    I need the updated DSM-V codes for Substance Use Disorders.  The codes I am seeing only show the old dependence/abuse/uncomplicated codes.

    I need mild, moderate, severe and the remission codes

    For example, 

    F10.11 Alcohol Use Disorder, Mild, in early remission

    looking for F10.10 through F19.21

    Thanks!!

    Hi John - I've created a help request on your behalf so a member of our team can reach out to you regarding the ICD-10 Codes you requested. However, from my preliminary search, I did find the two you mentioned: F10.10 and F19.21. We will be in touch about the remaining codes in the range.

    SP support, please add the following diagnoses and codes:
    z63.4 uncomplicated grief - it is inaccurately titled as disappearance and death of family member;
    z63.791 problem with sibling relationship - it is inaccurately titled as sibling rivalry

    And I found z63.72 alcoholism or drug addiction in the family as an option in SP but this doesn’t exist in DSM5 so it should be deleted

    Will SP finish combing thru the DSM5 to finish inputting all diagnoses so that clinicians have the ability to accurately assign what applies to clients regardless if they are billable by insurance?

    **************

    I received a response from SP, saying they will not add / correct these Z codes. I'm highly dissatisfied with this. A huge negative to paying for and using SP. If it weren't for me in a group practice who uses SP, I would cancel and go elsewhere.

    I agree, April.  I've asked before and pointed out to SP that I want to reflect an accurate diagnosis, not what an insurance company believes the diagnosis should be.

    I need the following list of codes added to the short list available. It directs me to ask here for the codes needed. Thanks

    Please add the following codes:

    F06.31 Mood Disorder due to Medical Condition

    F34.1 Persisten Depressive Disorder

    F40.10 Social Anxiety Disorder

    F41.0 Panic Disorder

    F42 Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

    F60.0, F60.81, F60.7 Personality Disorders

     Z63.8 High expressed emotional level within family

    Z63.4 Uncomplicated Bereavement

    Z56.9 Other problem related to employment

    Z60.0 Phase of Life Problem

    Z71.9 Other counseling or consultation

    Z91.49 Other personal history of psychological trauma

    One final question/issue: With Major Depressive Disorder there is only one choice with a specifier. Not all are the same and require more specific coding such as F32.0, F32.1, F32.2 etc. How do you change the specifier?

    Patricia, Rachel and others, this issue has me super aggravated with SP’s program. I’d research leaving if I were a PP. I pressed SP on the matter and here is the long response as to our options:

    We currently use the ICD-10 diagnosis descriptions from CMS.gov since they frequently keep their list updated.

    If you would like to have a code added to this list, please provide the ICD-10 code and its description. Once I receive those from you, I'll verify this and add it to our system if it is a billable code.
    I checked with a colleague to confirm and we are no longer adding non-billable diagnosis to our platform.
    However, I do have some alternate workflows you can use to add these diagnosis to your client's file.

    You can add a chart note to denote the DSM-5 description. Here is a great guide on chart notes: Using chart notes.

    You can also create your own Treatment Plan template. Creating a custom Template would allow you to make these diagnosis an option in your practice. Here is a helpful guide on creating custom templates for Treatment Plans: Adding assessments, diagnoses, and treatment plans.

    If you are using Superbills in your practice, they do auto-populate ICD-10 codes. If you would like to edit this so that the diagnosis is not printed on the Superbill, here is a helpful guide on that: Removing a diagnosis description on a superbill.

    I understand your practice's need for DSM-5 diagnosis. I have brought this to the attention of our Product Specialists team and I encourage you to add it to our Ideas and Suggestions board.
    This board is one of our most important resources for understanding which features will have the most value for our community. Posting on our Ideas and Suggestions board means that members of our Product Team, as well as all members of our Community, have transparent access to review your suggestion. Other members can vote on your suggestion, and you can vote on their suggestions as well. You'll also receive notifications when our team makes an update to this post.
