ICD-10 and DSM-5 for Behavioral Health

There are relatively few increases in ICD-10 codes in behavioral health relative to high impact specialties such as Orthopedics. There are 27 ICD-9 codes for Anxiety Disorders and 47 codes under ICD-10 for example, vs. thousands of code changes in some specialties. Therefore, some behavioral health providers assume in error that because there are fewer codes that the ICD-10 transition has little impact on their organization, which is not true.
