The conversion from ICD 9/DSM 4-TR to ICD 10/DSM 5 has come and gone. Many RCPA members are reporting claims denials for billing codes related to the Schizophrenia NOS and PTSD NOS. The reason is that the DSM 5 only offers the Schizophrenia NOS code but the ICD 10 offers seven other choices for Schizophrenia and similarly for PTSD. Clinicians are using the DSM 5 for documentation and choosing the available option; however, when converted to ICD 10 for billing and payment, the person does not meet the criteria for Schizophrenia NOS – therefore, CMS is denying payment. And if you think you are out of the woods in the substance abuse arena, think again; those problems are forthcoming.
