ICD-10-CM Code Q93.5
Other deletions of part of a chromosome
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.
Q93.5 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other deletions of part of a chromosome. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
POA Indicators on CMS form 4010A are as follows:
|Indicator||Meaning||CMS Will Pay CC/MCC DRG Costs|
|Y||Diagnosis was present at time of inpatient admission||Yes|
|N||Diagnosis was not present at time of inpatient admission||No|
|U||Documentation insufficient to determine if the condition was present at the time of inpatient admission.||No|
|W||Clinically undetermined. Provider unable to clinically determine whether the condition was present at the time of inpatient admission.||Yes|
|1||Exempt from POA reporting||No|
The ICD code Q935 is used to code 9q34 deletion syndrome
9q34 deletion syndrome, also known as kleefstra syndrome, is a rare genetic disorder. terminal deletions of chromosome 9q34 have been associated with childhood hypotonia, a distinctive facial appearance and developmental disability. the facial features typically described include arched eyebrows, small head circumference, midface hypoplasia, prominent jaw and a pouting lower lip. individuals with this disease may often have speech impediments, such as speech delays. other characteristics of this disease include: epilepsy, congenital and urogenetic defects, microcephaly, corpulence, and psychiatric disorders. from analysis of chromosomal breakpoints, as well as gene sequencing in suggestive cases, kleefstra and colleagues identified ehmt1 as the causative gene. this gene is responsible for producing the protein histone methyltransferase which functions to alter histones. ultimately, histone methyltransferases are important in deactivating certain genes, needed for proper growth and development. moreover, a frameshift, missense, or nonsense error in the coding sequence of ehmt1 can result in this condition in an individual.
