DSM-5 DXs and specifiers
Answered

Hi. I am used to diagnosing with such codes as F10.20 Alcohol Use Disorder, Severe, but DXs are different here at simple practice. Its ok to use: F10.20 - Alcohol dependence, uncomplicated, which is the equivalent I found here, but it has no specifier??

 

Thanks for your help.

    Hi Alexander, I'd be happy to help with this. SimplePractice uses ICD-10 codes for diagnoses to remain compliant with insurance payers, who require ICD-10 codes on insurance claims. You can find a full list of all the ICD-10 codes out there at icd10data.com. Additionally, your DSM-V includes a table in the reference section that translates DSM-V codes to ICD-10 codes. Let me know if you have any additional questions about this, or anything else SimplePractice. I'm here to help.

    I am accustomed to using icd 9 codes. I'm a bit confused.

    Hello,

    Searching for info on adding a specifier to the diagnosis.  If I select F32.0 for Depressive Disorder, single episode, mild... how can I also add the specifier "with anxious distress"?

    Thank you,
    Trisha

    Hi Trisha, happy to help. Most of our customers add specifiers into their Progress Note templates. SimplePractice does not currently support the addition of specifiers when creating a Diagnosis and Treatment Plan.
