Brain C-13 Review

by Shanu Sweet (2019-08-04)


Diagnosis is made by professionals who are not Brain C-13 in intimate touch with those individuals who come for help. Insurance companies and third party payers demand a medical diagnosis before they will reimburse for a claim, starting with the first visit. It is unrealistic that under the present delivery system today that most psychotherapists can positively and accurately determine the diagnosis code required. The diagnosis criteria often change from one edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual(DSM) to the next Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, the psychotherapists diagnostic bible. For instance, a common presenting problem is identity disorder. Yet identity disorder is no longer listed in the DSM, so therapists may have to "fudge" a bit on the diagnosis...if they want to get reimbursed. Further complicating the situation is the fact that not all DSM diagnoses are reimbursible. Because many insurance companies will not reimburse for autistic spectrum disorders, therapists become creative. Thousands of individuals who need therapy are not receiving it.
