Do you currently feel depressed? If not, then I would not say anything about the depression. If they later say that they checked with your doctor and he said you had "major depression", tell them that it's not really true and that you just had anxiety. If they ask about meds, you can say that the meds are just for anxiety.

But they might not check with your doctor. Don't even give them your pdoc's name. If they require your family doctor's name, call him first yourself. Tell your doc that you think that the condition you have/had is just anxiety and not depression. Ask him if he is willing to tell that to the insurance company if they ask.
