The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is temporarily suspending access to its new database that keeps track of payments physicians receive from the pharmaceutical and medical-device industries. The database, called Open Payments, allows physicians who have registered with CMS to verify the accuracy of the information that these industries have reported. The reporting system was established through the Physician Payments Sunshine Act as required by the Affordable Care Act. APA will alert members when access to the database has been restored.

Quick Guide for ICD-10 and DSM 5 Codes

As you may know, beginning October 1, 2014, the US will be transitioning to the ICD-10-CM system of medical codes. In anticipation of this change, DSM-5 includes both ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes. However, questions from clinicians have arisen about the nature and purpose of the codes in DSM-5 and how they should be used in light of the impending adoption of ICD-10-CM.

In order to ensure clinicians are fully aware of the issues surrounding the transition, the APA has developed a fact sheet HEREto serve as a “quick guide for clinicians” in understanding the relationship between DSM and ICD.
