ICD-10-CM Code Q89.8
Other specified congenital malformations

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

Q89.8 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other specified congenital malformations. 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 Q898 is used to code Malpuech facial clefting syndrome

Malpuech facial clefting syndrome, also called Malpuech syndrome or Gypsy type facial clefting syndrome, is a rare congenital syndrome. It is characterized by facial clefting (any type of cleft in the bones and tissues of the face, including a cleft lip and palate), a caudal appendage (a "human tail"), growth deficiency, intellectual and developmental disability, and abnormalities of the renal system (kidneys) and the male genitalia. Abnormalities of the heart, and other skeletal malformations may also be present. The syndrome was initially described by Guilliaume Malpuech and associates in 1983. It is thought to be genetically related to Juberg-Hayward syndrome. Malpuech syndrome has also been considered as part of a spectrum of congenital genetic disorders associated with similar facial, urogenital and skeletal anomalies. Termed "3MC syndrome", this proposed spectrum includes Malpuech, Michels and Mingarelli-Carnevale (OSA) syndromes. Mutations in the COLLEC11 and MASP1 genes are believed to be a cause of these syndromes. The incidence of Malpuech syndrome is unknown. The pattern of inheritance is autosomal recessive, which means a defective (mutated) gene associated with the syndrome is located on an autosome, and the syndrome occurs when two copies of this defective gene are inherited.

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 Q89.8 and a single ICD9 code, 759.89 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
