Manual guides insurance care

The American Psychiatric Association has approved revisions to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual – the diagnostic guide used by the nation’s psychiatrists. It is the organization’s fifth revision of the manual and will be known as DSM-5.

Among other uses, the manual is relied upon by the insurance industry in deciding what treatments to pay for.

The revised manual will be published in May.
