The description field on the UB-04 is 24 characters in length. An example of the methodology is illustrated below: N U N Submission of POA Indicators for Primary and Secondary Diagnoses General POA equirements POA Indicator reporting is mandatory for all claims involving inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals or other facilities. POA is defined as present at the time the order for inpatient admission occurs. onditions that develop during an outpatient encounter, including emergency department, observation or outpatient surgery, are considered POA. A POA Indicator must be assigned to principal and secondary diagnoses (as defined in Section II of the Official Guidelines for oding and eporting) and the external cause of injury codes. MS does not require a POA Indicator for an external cause of injury code unless it is being reported as an other diagnosis. Issues related to inconsistent, missing, conflicting or unclear documentation must be resolved by the provider. If a condition would not be coded and reported based on Uniform Hospital Discharge Data Set definitions and current official coding guidelines, the POA Indicator would not be reported. POA Indicators are as follows, blanks are not acceptable: Y = Yes = present at the time of inpatient admission. N = No = not present at the time of inpatient admission. U = Unknown = documentation is insufficient to determine if condition was present at time of inpatient admission. W = linically Undetermined = provider is unable to clinically determine whether condition was present at time of inpatient admission or not. 1 = Exempt from POA reporting. POA oding Use the UB-04 Data Specifications Manual and the ID Official Guidelines for oding and eporting to facilitate the assignment of the POA indicator for each principal diagnosis and other ID diagnosis codes reported on the UB-04 and AS X12N 837 Institutional (837I). Hospitals reporting with the 5010 format will no longer report a POA Indicator of 1 for POA exempt codes. The POA field will instead be left blank for codes exempt from POA reporting. eporting POA on the UB-04 laim Form Fields 67 A Q: valid primary and secondary diagnosis codes (up to five digits) are to be placed in the unshaded portion of 67 A Q, followed by the applicable POA Indicator (one character) in the shaded portion of 67 A Q.

Although this segment can repeat, the plan requires the provider to submit POA data on a single K3 segment. No additional K3 segments with the letters POA will be laim Form Field equirements Submission of POA Indicators for Primary and Secondary Diagnoses 17

18 validated. K301 must contain POA as the first three characters or the POA data will not be picked up. K3*POA~ K3 segment must only contain details pertaining to the Principal and Other Diagnosis found in the HI segment with qualifiers BK for Principal and BF for Other Diagnosis prior to the ending Z (or X). The POA Indicator for the BN External ause of Injury on the K3 segment with POA is entered following the ending Z (or X). This is required by Emdeon for Medicare claims as well. No POA Indicator is to be sent for the BJ/ZZ Admitting Diagnosis Data. Following the letters POA in the K3 segment is to be only those identified on the Medicare Bulletin. 1, Y, N, U, W are valid, with ending characters of X or Z and E-ode indicator. POA Indicator Example: POA Indicators for an electronic claim with one principal and five secondary diagnoses should be coded as: K3* POAYNUW1YZ.POA The principal diagnosis is always the first indicator after Y POA. In this example, the principal diagnosis was present on admission. The first secondary diagnosis was not present on admission, N designated by N. U W 1 Y Z It was unknown if the second secondary diagnosis was present on admission, designated by U. It is clinically undetermined if the third secondary diagnosis was present on admission, designated by W. The fourth secondary diagnosis was exempt from reporting for POA, designated by 1. NOTE: Hospitals reporting with the 5010 format on and after Jan. 1, 2011, will no longer report a POA indicator of 1 for POA exempt codes. The POA field will instead be left blank for codes exempt from POA reporting. The fifth secondary diagnosis was present on admission, designated by Y. The last secondary diagnosis indicator is followed by the letter Z to indicate the end. The next table outlines the payment implications for each of the different POA Indicators. MS POA Indicator Options and Definitions ode eason for ode Y N U W 1 Diagnosis was present at time of inpatient admission. MS will pay the complicating condition/major complicating condition (/M) DG for those selected Hospital Acquired onditions (HAs) that are coded as Y for the POA Indicator. Diagnosis was not present at time of inpatient admission. MS will not pay the /M DG for those selected HAs that are coded as N for the POA Indicator. Documentation insufficient to determine if the condition was present at the time of inpatient admission. MS will not pay the /M DG for those selected HAs that are coded as U for the POA. linically undetermined. Provider unable to clinically determine whether the condition was present at the time of inpatient admission. MS will pay the /M DG for those selected HAs that are coded as W for the POA Indicator. Unreported/Not used. Exempt from POA reporting. This code is equivalent to a blank on the UB-04, however; it was determined that blanks are undesirable when submitting this data via the 4010A. MS will not pay the /M DG for those selected HAs that are coded as 1 for the POA Indicator. The 1 POA Indicator should not be applied to any codes on the HA list. Key Points: IPPS hospitals will no longer report the POA Indicator of 1. ID-M diagnosis codes that are exempt from the POA reporting requirement should be left blank instead of populating a 1. In addition, the K3 segment, which was required for reporting POA in the 4010A1 version of the 837I, is no longer used to report POA. For 5010 the POA indicators will instead follow the diagnosis code in the appropriate 2300 HI segment. All Patient efined Diagnosis elated Groups (AP-DG) Effective with dates of service Jan. 1, 2012, Select Health moved to the All Patient efined Diagnosis elated Groups (AP-DGs) method of paying for hospital inpatient services. The goals of the AP-DGs payment are to employ a methodology that is sustainable and more appropriate to Medicaid using a modern DG algorithm, which enables reduced payment for hospital-acquired conditions and simplifies the current payment method. 18 Select Health laims Filing Manual

19 AP-DGs version 28 replaced the current 3M grouper version 24. AP-DGs is a classification system that classifies patients according to: eason for admission. Severity of illness (SOI). AP-DGs grouping process: SOI is used for payment calculation. Dependent on patient diagnosis and procedures. Severity levels define the degree of illness a patient is experiencing. Payment is adjusted to appropriately reimburse hospitals at a higher level for treating sicker patients. This payment method will apply to general acute care hospitals (including distinct-part units of general hospitals both inside South arolina and out of state. Payment methods for inpatient services provided by free-standing long-term psychiatric facilities and residential treatment facilities are unaffected. Birth Weight With the implementation of the AP-DGs payment methodology, Select Health must ensure we are reporting the appropriate encounter data for abnormal birth weights; therefore, we are requesting providers bill as follows: Please use ID M code ranges V21.30-V21.35 or as appropriate and/or Birth weight can be reported through use of Value ode 54 followed by the actual birth weight in grams Birth weight must be numeric.
