Using DSM-5 as Your Partner to Improve Clinical Practice and Facilitate Reimbursement
Mental health professionals in 2014 are faced with the need to incorporate wide-ranging changes in diagnostic practices, the extent of which have not been seen in a generation. DSM-5, released in 2013, is still a new manual and is structurally quite different from DSM-IV. For example, DSM-5 methods better reflect the dimensionality of psychological symptoms, and five-axis diagnosis has been eliminated. Standardization of assessment across researchers and clinicians is encouraged via the inclusion of cross-cutting assessments. DSM-5 adds 15 new diagnoses, eliminates others, and revises criteria for many additional disorders. Furthermore, DSM-5 includes a vastly expanded and specific list of V-codes. As if mastering these changes was not enough, clinicians are simultaneously faced with the transition to ICD-10-CM coding on October 1, 2014.
This seminar provides you with the tools to skillfully navigate these transitions. Review key diagnostic changes, focusing on the most common adult diagnoses, and case vignettes illustrating changes in diagnostic coding from DSM-IV to DSM-5/ICD-10-CM. This course also introduces several new DSM-5 standardized assessment measures. Learn how to easily incorporate these into your practice and use them to improve treatment effectiveness. Insurers are increasingly likely to require standardized measures, so knowing which ones to use and how to incorporate them into treatment plans can help reduce the number of reimbursement objections that you and your clients encounter. Finally, the workshop demonstrates how a working knowledge of DSM-5 will ease the transition to ICD-10-CM.
