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.

Q87.2 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of congenital malformation syndromes predominantly involving limbs. 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

The ICD code Q872 is used to code Holt-Oram syndrome

Holt–Oram syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder that affects bones in the arms and hands (the upper limbs) and may also cause heart problems. The syndrome includes an absent radial bone in the arms, an atrial septal defect, and a first degree heart block. Holt–Oram syndrome is considered to be a phenocopy of thalidomide, since both the genetic disorder and the teratogenic effects have similar presentations in individuals.
