DSM V Codes

dsm-4.jpg

DSM V codes identify conditions other than a disease or injury and are also used to report significant factors that may influence present or future care. DSM V codes are not necessarily a primary diagnosis. DSM V codes are very important for medical billing and managed care operations as they have a strong influence on covered treatments.

According to the DSM-IV, DSM V codes are used as follows:

  • The problem is the focus of diagnosis or treatment and individual has no behavioral health condition (e.g., a Partner Relational Problem in which neither partner has symptoms that meet criteria for a behavioral health condition).
  • The individual has a behavioral health condition but it is unrelated to the presenting problem (e.g., a Partner Relational Problem in which one of the partners has an incidental behavioral health condition).
  • The individual has a behavioral health condition that is related to the presenting problem, but the problem is sufficiently severe to warrant independent clinical attention (e.g., a Partner Relational Problem sufficiently problematic to be a focus of treatment that is also associated with Major Depressive Disorder in one of the partners).
