ConcernsEdit

Accurately assessing for a specific Depressive Disorder diagnosis requires an expenditure of time that is deemed unreasonable for most primary care physicians. For this reason, physicians often use this code as a proxy for a more thorough diagnostic assessment. There is concern that this may lead to a "waste basket" mindset for certain disorders.
