SSA Releases New Mental Impairments Listing

November 10, 2016

 

SSA issued a final rule on revised medical criteria for evaluating mental disorders in adults on September 26, 2016.  The final rule was published more than six years after the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking was published in the Federal Register (75 Fed. Reg. 51336).  The final rules go into effect on January 17, 2017 and can be found at https://www/gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2016-09-26/pdf/2016-22908.pdf.

 

Major changes from the current listings include updated titles and addition of brand new listings. Key revisions include numerous and substantial changes, including the addition of eating disorders and trauma- and stressor-related disorders, separation of neurodevelopmental disorders from 12.10 into its own listing, and removal of substance addiction disorders altogether.
