Present on Admission Exempt ICD-10 Codes - Congenital absence, atresia and stenosis of large intestine (Q42)

POA indicators must be reported to CMS on each claim to facilitate the grouping of diagnoses codes into the proper Diagnostic Related Groups (DRG). CMS publishes a listing of specific ICD-10 diagnosis codes that are exempt from the POA reporting requirement.
