ICD 10 coding for depression & PASRR

  1. Unsure where else to post this, and can't really find any helpful information anywhere so thought I'd leave this here and see if anyone has any input.

    Since our ICD 10 switchover, *every* person with depression has a dx of Major Depressive Disorder. Some staff recently attended a PASRR class and are confused now about this because they were told that Major Depressive Disorder would indicate a Level 2 PASRR. Our clinic's are using the same code for depression, and there's not many other options unless a generic "other depressive disorder" is used.

    Is anyone else using another code for general depression in LTC settings?
