I'm Bipolar II and it is unstable. The code that has been used for me is 296.89 'Other Manic-depressive psychosis, mixed type' I have been on disability for a year now which has involved getting approved successfully by metlife. I think that it is more than just the diaganosis code though. In my cases, my pdoc also had to provide the DSM information.
