Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
POA Exempt CodeThe 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.

|Indicator||Meaning||CMS Will Pay CC/MCC DRG Costs|
|Y||Diagnosis was present at time of inpatient admission||Yes|

The ICD code Q778 is used to code Opsismodysplasia
opsismodysplasia is a type of skeletal dysplasia (a bone disease that interferes with bone development) first described by zonana and associates in 1977, and designated under its current name by maroteaux (1984). derived from the greek opsismos ("late"), the name "opsismodysplasia" describes a delay in bone maturation. in addition to this delay, the disorder is characterized by micromelia (short or undersized bones), particularly of the hands and feet, delay of ossification (bone cell formation), platyspondyly (flattened vertebrae), irregular metaphyses, an array of facial aberrations and respiratory distress related to chronic infection. opsismodysplasia is congenital, being apparent at birth. it has a variable mortality, with some affected individuals living to adulthood. the disorder is rare, with an incidence of less than 1 per 1,000,000 worldwide. it is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern, which means the defective (mutated) gene that causes the disorder is located on an autosome, and the disorder occurs when two copies of this defective gene are inherited. no specific gene has been found to be associated with the disorder. it is similar to spondylometaphyseal dysplasia, sedaghatian type.
