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.
