When the DSM-5 comes out, are you automatically given a new diagnosis?

The DSM-5 is coming. I have a diagnosis that is being revamped in the new edition, the name is totally different. Does my doctor do a new evaluation and converts it over, or just converts it himself by clicking some things in a computer, or does the wording/paperwork/dx code stay the same? Also, does everything have to be reevaluated since there are minor changes to many things?

I don't think it's too hard to figure out which I am specifically talking about for myself from my previous questions, but if you need to know because you have some expert knowledge on the subject pertaining to the change in that area, feel free to memail me. I am also curious in a more general sense, so if you generally know what's going to happen, say, from an insurance perspective, I would also like to know what you have to say about it.
