we are getting an error on our billing for using 294.10. The provider has been given a list of dx codes to bill first with this code since this is a manifestation code. But he states that non of them are codes he could use. he is asking if there is a dx code for pseudo-dementia caused by depression? he thinks we can add this code...
please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Thank you for your question. The code below may work for what your doctor is looking for. Depression is not listed as a code first code for 294.10, after research the code below may be appropriate with the depression diagnosis.
300.16 Factitious disorder with predominantly psychological signs and symptoms
