Which new DSM-5 disorders proposed for inserting into ICD-10-CM are already added to the ICD-11 Beta draft?

Post #280 Shortlink: http://wp.me/pKrrB-3vs

Update to ICD-11 Beta draft at February 3, 2014:

Since my update on January 3, in the ICD-11 Beta draft, Hypochondriasis (illness anxiety disorder) has since been reverted to Hypochondriasis with illness anxiety disorder listed, instead, as an Inclusion term to Hypochondriasis.

Hypochondriasis was subsequently assigned to three parents:

Bodily distress disorders, and psychological and behavioural factors associated with disorders or diseases classified elsewhere; Obsessive-compulsive and related disorders;
Anxiety and fear-related disorders;

At February 3, Hypochondriasis has been removed from parent Bodily distress disorders and is currently assigned dual parentage under:

Obsessive-compulsive and related disorders;
Anxiety and fear-related disorders

The Definition for Hypochondriasis currently displaying in the Beta draft appears to be the legacy Definition, unrevised from ICD-10.

Update to ICD-11 Beta draft at January 3, 2014:

Revision to ICD-11 Beta draft: In the report below, I stated:

ICD-11 public version Beta draft: Illness anxiety disorder is proposed to be dual coded as Hypochondriasis (illness anxiety disorder) under primary parent, Obsessive-compulsive and related disorders and also coded under Bodily distress disorders, and psychological and behavioural factors associated with disorders or diseases classified elsewhere and assigned a unique code.

As the ICD-11 Beta drafting platform now stands, at January 3, 2014, the DSM-5 term “(illness anxiety disorder)” has been removed from the “Hypochondriasis (illness anxiety disorder)” disorder name and the term reverted to Hypochondriasis.

The term “illness anxiety disorder” is now displaying as listed under “Synonyms” to Hypochondriasis in the ICD-11 Beta Foundation View, and listed under “All Index Terms” in the Morbidity Linearization View.

As previously posted on November 6, 2013:

In the previous four posts, I have documented the September 18-19, 2013 meeting of the ICD-9-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee and reported on American Psychiatric Association (APA) proposals for inserting a number of new DSM-5 terms into the forthcoming US specific ICD-10-CM.

I also set out how public and professional stakeholders can submit comment or objections on any of the proposals requested at this meeting before the November 15 deadline.

At the September meeting, Darrel Regier, MD, APA Director of Research, presented six diagnoses that are new to DSM-5 for inclusion within ICD-10-CM, with proposals for assigning unique new codes to these disorders for October 2015 [1].

Some of the DSM-5 disorders, below, presented for consideration for inclusion in ICD-10-CM are already entered into the ICD-11 Beta drafting platform and in some cases, entered into the draft over a year or more ago.*

*Caveat: The ICD-11 Beta draft is not approved by WHO or WHA. The Beta draft is a work in progress over the next two to three years. The Beta draft is updated on a daily basis: parent terms, category terms, sorting codes and descriptive content are subject to change as chapter reorganization progresses. This post reflects the Beta draft as it stood on November 6, 2013. ICD-11 Beta Draft Caveats

Binge eating disorder (BED)

(Rationale: Page 32, Diagnosis Agenda: Page 6, Diagnosis Presentations Summary)

Proposal for ICD-10-CM for October 1, 2014: add Binge eating disorder (BED) as an inclusion term to F50.8 Other eating disorders.

Proposal for ICD-10-CM for October 1, 2015: that a unique new code is created for F50.81 Binge eating disorder.

ICD-11 public version Beta draft: Binge eating disorder currently proposed to be coded under Feeding and eating disorders and assigned a unique ICD-11 code. No ICD-11 Definition or other “Content Model” descriptive parameters have yet been populated for Binge eating disorder.

——————————

Gender Identity Disorder in Adolescence and Adulthood

(Rationale: Page 34, Page 6, Diagnosis Presentations Summary)

Proposal for ICD-10-CM for October 1, 2014: that ICD-10-CM change the code for Gender identity disorder in adolescents and adulthood to F64.0 and that “gender dysphoria in adolescents and adults” is added as an inclusion term for this entry.

ICD10CM5

Source: September 2013 Diagnosis Agenda, Page 34

[See Page 34 of Diagnosis Agenda for discussion of proposed coding changes.]

——————————

Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD)

(Rationale: Page 35, Diagnosis Agenda; Page 6, Diagnosis Presentations Summary)

Proposal for ICD-10-CM for October 1, 2014: add Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD) as an inclusion term under F34.8: Other persistent mood [affective] disorders.

Proposal for ICD-10-CM for October 1, 2015: that unique new codes are created at F34.81 Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder and F34.89 Other specified persistent mood disorders.

ICD-11 public version Beta draft: Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD) is not currently listed.

——————————

Social (Pragmatic) Communication Disorder

(Rationale: Page 37, Diagnosis Agenda; Page 6, Diagnosis Presentations Summary)

Proposal for ICD-10-CM for October 1, 2014: add Social (Pragmatic) Communication Disorder as an inclusion term under F80.89 Other developmental disorders of speech and language.

Proposal for ICD-10-CM for October 1, 2015: that a unique new code is created at F80.82 Social pragmatic communication disorder.

Excludes1: Asperger’s syndrome (F84.5)

Autistic disorder (F84.0)

ICD-11 public version Beta draft: Social (Pragmatic) Communication Disorder is not currently listed.

——————————

Hoarding disorder

(Rationale: Page 39, Diagnosis Agenda; Page 7, Diagnosis Presentations Summary)

Proposal for ICD-10-CM for October 1, 2014: add Hoarding disorder as an inclusion term to F42 Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Proposal for ICD-10-CM for October 1, 2015: that a unique new code is created at F42 for F42.2 for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and F42.3 for Hoarding Disorder in future revisions. (Ms. Pickett stated that new code proposal starting at F42.2 is due to F42.0 and F42.1 deactivation by WHO.)

F42 Obsessive compulsive disorder

New code F42.2 Mixed obsessional thoughts and acts
New code F42.3 Hoarding disorder
New code F42.8 Other obsessive compulsive disorder
New code F42.9 Obsessive-compulsive disorder, unspecified

ICD-11 public version Beta draft: Hoarding disorder currently proposed to be coded under parent Obsessive-compulsive and related disorders and assigned a unique code. No ICD-11 Definition or other “Content Model” descriptive parameters have yet been populated for Hoarding disorder.

——————————

Excoriation (skin picking) disorder

(APA Rationale: Page 41, Diagnosis Agenda, Page 7, Diagnosis Presentations Summary)

Proposal for ICD-10-CM for October 1, 2014: add Excoriation (skin-picking) disorder as an inclusion term to L98.1 Factitial dermatitis (Dermatology section).

Proposal for ICD-10-CM for October 1, 2015: that a unique new code is created at F42 for F42.4 Excoriation (skin-picking) disorder.

Excludes1: Factitial dermatitis (L98.1)

Other specified behavioral and emotional disorders with onset usually occurring in early childhood and adolescence (F98.8)

ICD-11 public version Beta draft: Excoriation disorder (skin-picking disorder) currently proposed to be coded under Obsessive-compulsive and related disorders under parent Body-focused repetitive behaviour disorders and assigned a unique code. No ICD-11 Definition or other “Content Model” descriptive parameters have yet been populated for Excoriation (skin-picking) disorder.

——————————

Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)

(APA Rationale: Page 43, Diagnosis Agenda; Page 7, Diagnosis Presentations Summary)

APA considers that placing PMDD outside the recurrent depressive disorder category is less than optimal for differentiating it from ICD-10-CM N94.3 Premenstrual Tension Syndrome, which is generally less severe than PMDD, and does not require psychiatric treatment. If an alternative code in the F32 series is possible, APA would prefer to modify the code in that section in future revisions.

Proposal for ICD-10-CM for October 1, 2014: add Premenstrual dysphoric disorder as an inclusion term to N94.3 Premenstrual tension syndrome (Chapter 15 Diseases of the genitourinary system).

Proposal for ICD-10-CM for October 1, 2015: that a unique new code is created under Chapter 5 F32.8 Other depressive episodes.

New code F32.81 Premenstrual dysphoric disorder

Excludes1: premenstrual tension syndrome (N94.3)

ICD-11 public version Beta draft: Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) currently proposed to be dual coded under Chapter 15 Diseases of the genitourinary system > Premenstrual tension syndrome and also coded under Chapter 5 Depressive disorders and assigned a unique code. A draft ICD-11 Definition has been populated for PMDD but no other ICD-11 “Content Model” descriptive parameters have been populated.

——————————

Somatic symptom disorder and Illness anxiety disorder

ICD10CM 4

Source: September 2013 Diagnosis Agenda, Page 45

Somatic symptom disorder:

(No rationale provided: Page 45, Diagnosis Agenda) Requester unspecified

Proposal for ICD-10-CM: add Somatic symptom disorder under F45 Somatoform Disorders as inclusion term to F45.1 Undifferentiated somatoform disorder.

ICD-11 public version Beta draft: There is no Somatic symptom disorder in the ICD-11 Beta draft either as a unique new ICD-11 entity code or as an inclusion term or Synonym to an existing ICD-11 code.

For ICD-11 Core version: the current proposal for the F45 Somatoform disorders is for a proposed new construct, Bodily distress disorder, to replace a number of existing ICD-10 categories under Bodily distress disorders, and psychological and behavioural factors associated with disorders or diseases classified elsewhere. Two specifiers: Bodily distress disorder and Severe Bodily distress disorder have yet to be defined or characterized within the Beta draft and no “Content Model” parameters have yet been populated. ICD-11 plans to field test this proposed new ICD-11 construct.

The Definition for Bodily distress disorders, and psychological and behavioural factors associated with disorders or diseases classified elsewhere currently displaying in the Beta draft appears to be the legacy Somatoform disorders Definition imported from ICD-10 and does not reflect any proposed structural reorganization or construct revision for the ICD Somatoform disorders categories.

——————————

Illness anxiety disorder

(No rationale provided: Page 45, Diagnosis Agenda) Requester unspecified

Proposal for ICD-10-CM: add Illness anxiety disorder under F45 Somatoform disorders as inclusion term to F45.21 Hypochondriasis.

ICD-11 public version Beta draft: Illness anxiety disorder is proposed to be dual coded as Hypochondriasis (illness anxiety disorder) under primary parent, Obsessive-compulsive and related disorders and also coded under Bodily distress disorders, and psychological and behavioural factors associated with disorders or diseases classified elsewhere and assigned a unique code.

The Definition for Hypochondriasis (illness anxiety disorder) currently displaying in the Beta draft appears to be the legacy Definition imported from ICD-10 and does not reflect any proposed structural reorganization or construct revision for the ICD Somatoform disorders categories.

Update: Crazy Like Us: How the U.S. Exports Its Models of Illness – DSM-5 is Americanizing the world’s understanding of the mind by Christopher Lane, Ph.D. in Side Effects, October 9, 2013

This report relates to proposals submitted via the September ICD-9-CM/PCS Coordination and Maintenance Committee meeting for the inclusion of additional codes to the forthcoming US specific ICD-10-CM.

The twice yearly ICD-9-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee meetings provide a public forum to discuss proposed code changes to ICD-9-CM and the ICD-10-CM/PCS. Next year, the committee, which is co-chaired by CMS and CDC, will be renamed to the ICD-10-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee.

ICD-10-CM/PCS is scheduled for implementation in October 2014 and currently subject to partial code freeze.

The meeting scheduled on September 18, 2013 was devoted to both diagnosis and procedure code topics. The second day of the meeting, September 19, continued discussions related to diagnosis code topics.

Below are links for key meeting materials, four videocasts, and agenda item listings for the diagnosis proposals presented on Day Two (videocast Part 4). This includes the presentation of proposals by American Psychiatric Association (APA) Director of Research, Darrel Regier, MD, for insertion of new DSM-5 diagnoses into the ICD-10-CM.

Donna Pickett (CDC): “…November 15…is in the Topic Package for receipt of comments on all of the proposals. That is the deadline, but we’d love to have them sooner as this does have implications in terms of what does become part of an addenda or not, and that would be specific to the inclusion terms in the Tabular List and Alphabetical Index because, again, unless the proposal meets the criteria established for the partial freeze, no new codes are being entertained except for the ones that were requested. We invite your comments on that as well…”

APA petitions CMS for additions to ICD-10-CM: Deadline for public comment and objections November 15

Post #276 Shortlink: http://wp.me/pKrrB-3tq

Information in this report relates to American Psychiatric Association (APA) proposals, submitted via the September ICD-9-CM/PCS Coordination and Maintenance Committee Meeting, for the inclusion of a number of additions to the forthcoming US specific ICD-10-CM.

ICD-9-CM is the official system of assigning codes to medical diagnoses in the United States. Next year, ICD-9-CM will be replaced by ICD-10-CM, scheduled for implementation on October 1, 2014.

The DSM is widely used by CMS contractors, federal and state agencies and medical insurers to indicate eligibility for provision of services.

Since the official codes required in the United States for records and reimbursement purposes are ICD-CM codes, DSM diagnoses are cross-walked to the closest approximation of ICD-CM codes to classify diagnoses for insurance claims, research, data capture and other public health purposes.

APA petitions ICD-9-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee:

The ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM coding systems are subject to annual revisions by NCHS and CMS via public review meetings held twice a year (in March and September), followed by brief public comment periods.

October 1, 2011 saw the last major update of ICD-10-CM/PCS until October 1, 2015. Between October 1, 2011 and October 1, 2015 revisions to ICD-10-CM/PCS will be for new diseases/new technology procedures, and any minor revisions to correct reported errors in these classifications. Regular (at least annual) updates to ICD-10-CM/PCS will resume on October 1, 2015.

The ICD-9-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee will continue to meet twice a year during this partial code freeze. At these meetings, the public will be asked to comment on whether or not requests for new diagnosis or procedure codes should be created based on the criteria of the need to capture a new technology or disease. Any code requests that do not meet the criteria will be evaluated for implementation within ICD-10-CM on and after October 1, 2015 once the partial code freeze has ended.

At last month’s Coordination and Maintenance Committee meeting, APA presented seven diagnoses that are new to DSM-5, along with proposals for new codes for addition to the ICD-10-CM [1]. APA states that the new codes, if approved [by NCHS/CMS], would probably not be added to ICD-10-CM until 2015.

Yesterday, APA published an article in Psychiatric News (the PR organ of the APA), listing the additions and changes proposed by APA via the September meeting (about two thirds into the article):

ICD Codes for Some DSM-5 Diagnoses Updated, Mark Moran, Psychiatric News, October 07, 2013 DOI: 10.1176/appi.pn.2013.10b30

The following disorders were proposed by APA for inclusion in ICD-10-CM (Pages 32-44, Diagnosis Agenda).

Dr Regier’s presentation starts on Day Two of the meeting, video Part 4, 13:50 mins in from start and concludes after PMDD.

Binge eating disorder (BED);
Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD);
Social (pragmatic) communication disorder;
Hoarding disorder;
Excoriation (skin picking) disorder;
Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)

Additionally, the APA has petitioned for revisions to the ICD-10-CM listing for gender dysphoria in adolescents and adults, which is not a new disorder. Dr Regier’s presentation concluded with recommendations for PMDD.

Edit: On Page 45 and 46 of the Agenda, under Additional Tabular List Inclusion Terms for ICD-10-CM a number of other changes to specific Chapter 5 F codes are proposed, including the addition to the ICD-10-CM Chapter 5 codes of the new DSM disorders:

Somatic symptom disorder (proposed as Inclusion term to F45.1 Undifferentiated somatoform disorder)

Illness anxiety disorder (proposed as Inclusion term to F45.21 Hypochondriasis)

None of these 16 proposed additional inclusion terms to the ICD-10-CM Mental and behavioural disorders (Chapter 5) F codes, as listed on Pages 45-46, were presented or discussed by Dr Regier on behalf of the APA but presented briefly and en masse by Donna Pickett.

I have pasted screenshots from the Agenda at the end of this report [Ref 5].

Ms Pickett introduced this section of the Agenda on Day Two, video Part 4, 1 hour 22 mins in from start.

Diagnosis Agenda Item Page 45-46: “Additional Tabular List Inclusion Terms for ICD-10-CM”

Co-Chair Donna Pickett: “…And just to complete the package, there are other Tabular List proposals that appear on Page 45 and 46 that we would also invite your comments on. And again, as with some of the terminology changes that Dr Regier has described the intent here is to make sure that if those terms are being used, that they do have a home somewhere within ICD-10-CM to facilitate people looking these up. So we invite comments. We’re showing the Tabular List proposed changes. However, there obviously would be associated Alphabetic Index changes with that which we didn’t show [in the Agenda] just to keep the package a little bit smaller.”

With no discussion taking place on rationales for individual proposals and no comments or questions being received from the floor or by phone link, Ms Pickett moved swiftly forward to introduce the next Agenda item.

Since these proposals are unattributed in the Agenda, the provenance of these additional 16 code change requests is unclear (that is, whether the requestors are CMS/CDC, Collaborating Centre for the WHO-FIC in North America, WHO ICD-10 Update Committee, WHO ICD-11 Revision, APA or other petitioners).

If the addition of new DSM-5 disorders Somatic symptom disorder and Illness anxiety disorder had been proposed by the APA, it is unclear why these were not included within Dr Regier’s presentation for discussion.

Blink and you might have missed the proposal to incorporate Somatic symptom disorder and Illness anxiety disorder into ICD-10-CM – so little time and attention being devoted to this section of the Agenda.

Note that Hypochondriasis (Illness anxiety disorder) is proposed to be included in the ICD-11 Beta draft under dual parents Obsessive-compulsive and related disorders and Bodily distress disorders, and psychological and behavioural factors associated with disorders or diseases classified elsewhere.

Full proposals from APA and other petitioners can be read in the ICD-9-CM/PCS Coordination and Maintenance Committee Meeting Sept 18–19, 2013: Proposals document at:

A Summary report of the Procedure part of the September 18–19, 2013 ICD-9-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee meeting is not yet available. This is expected to be posted on the CMS webpage in October, at:

http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Coding/ICD9ProviderDiagnosticCodes/ICD-9-CM-C-and-M-Meeting-Materials.html

and also on the CDC’s website page for the meetings.

Other Meeting materials (Agenda, Proposals and four YouTubes of the two-day September meeting proceedings) are now available from this page [3]:

http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Coding/ICD9ProviderDiagnosticCodes/ICD-9-CM-C-and-M-Meeting-Materials-Items/2013-09-18-MeetingMaterials.html

There is an ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM/PCS revisions Timeline set out on pages 3 thru 7 of the Proposals PDF [2].

Submitting public comment:

The deadline for receipt of public and professional stakeholder comment on any of the proposed ICD-10-CM/PCS code revisions discussed at the September 18-19, 2013 ICD-9-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee meeting is November 15, 2013.

Comments should be sent to the following NCHS email addresses:

Procedure comments by email to Pat Brooks, CMS: patricia.brooks2@cms.hss.gov

Diagnosis comments by email to Donna Pickett, CDC: nchsicd9CM@cdc.gov

Full contact details for submission of comments/objections to NCHS/CMS are on page 8 of the Proposals PDF. The meeting co-chairs state that electronic submissions are greatly preferred over snail mail in order to ensure timely receipt.

Responders are asked to consider the following:

Whether you agree with a proposal, disagree (and why), or have an alternative proposal to suggest.

But also to comment on the timing of those proposals that are being requested for approval for October 2014.

Does a proposal for a new or changed Index entry and Tabular List entry meet the criteria for implementation in Oct 2014 during a partial code freeze or should consideration for inclusion be deferred to Oct 2015 implementation? And separately, comment on the creation of a specific new code for the condition effective from October 1, 2015.

I shall post reminders before the November 15, 2013 deadline date and also a copy of the September meeting Summary document, once this is available. (Posting of the Summary document may be delayed due to the government shut-down and you may prefer to review the YouTubes of the meeting proceedings rather than wait for the Summary document to appear.)

The D.S.M. and the Nature of Disease

Gary Greenberg | April 9, 2013

…The D.S.M. has enormous impact on the public health. It determines which conditions insurers will cover, which drugs regulators will approve, which children will receive special-education services, and which criminal defendants will be able to stand trial and, in some cases, how they will be sentenced. Psychiatry has already reached far into our daily lives, and it’s not by virtue of the particulars of any given D.S.M. It’s because the A.P.A., a private guild, one with extensive ties to the drug industry, owns the naming rights to our pain. That so significant a public trust is in private hands, and on such questionable grounds, is what we ought to worry about.
