Present of Admission (POA) Indicator list on UB 04
The table below outlines the payment implications for each of the different POA Indicator reporting options.
POA Indicator Options and Definitions Code Description
Y Diagnosis was present at time of inpatient admission. Florida Blue will pay the CC/MCC DRG for those selected HACs that are coded as "Y" for the POA Indicator
N Diagnosis was not present at time of inpatient admission. Florida Blue will not pay the CC/MCC DRG for those selected HACs that are coded as "N" for the POA Indicator.
U Documentation insufficient to determine if the condition was present at the time of inpatient admission. Florida Blue will not pay the CC/MCC DRG for those selected HACs that are coded as "U" for the POA Indicator.
W Clinically undetermined. Provider unable to clinically determine whether the condition was present at the time of inpatient admission. Florida Blue will pay the CC/MCC DRG for those selected HACs that are coded as "W" for the POA Indicator.
1 Unreported/Not used. Exempt from POA reporting. This code was the equivalent to a blank on the UB-04, however; it was determined that blanks are undesirable when submitting this data via the 4010A. For 5010 reporting, the 1 is no longer valid because POAs are no longer reported in a separate string.
