ICD-10-CM Code Q24.8
Other specified congenital malformations of heart

BILLABLE
Billable Code
Billable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
POA Exempt
POA Exempt Code
The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires medical coders to indicate whether or not a condition was present at the time of admission, in order to properly assign MS-DRG codes. This "Present On Admission" (POA) indicator is recorded on CMS form 4010A.
| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

Q24.8 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other specified congenital malformations of heart. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

POA Indicators on CMS form 4010A are as follows:

IndicatorMeaningCMS Will Pay CC/MCC DRG Costs
YDiagnosis was present at time of inpatient admissionYes
NDiagnosis was not present at time of inpatient admissionNo
UDocumentation insufficient to determine if the condition was present at the time of inpatient admission.No
WClinically undetermined. Provider unable to clinically determine whether the condition was present at the time of inpatient admission.Yes
1Exempt from POA reportingNo


The ICD code Q248 is used to code Ectopia cordis

Ectopia cordis (Greek: "away/out of place" + Latin: "heart") is a congenital malformation in which the heart is abnormally located either partially or totally outside of the thorax. The ectopic heart can be found along a spectrum of anatomical locations, including the neck, chest, or abdomen. In most cases, the heart protrudes outside the chest through a split sternum.

Equivalent ICD-9 Codes GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Obstructive anomalies of heart, not elsewhere classified (approximate match)
Malposition of heart and cardiac apex (approximate match)
Other specified congenital anomalies of heart (approximate match)

This is the official approximate match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that while there is no exact mapping between this ICD10 code Q24.8 and a single ICD9 code, 746.89 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
