Health Acquired Conditions (HAC)/Present on Admission (POA) Use SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).

Beginning January 1, 2015 Medicaid will implement an edit in the claims processing system that will look at inpatient claims for Health Acquired Conditions (HAC).  The system will use the combination of the Present on Admission (POA) indicator, procedure codes, and diagnosis codes.  The POA indicator is required for all claims involving Medicaid inpatient admissions.


POA is defined as present at the time the order for inpatient admission occurs — conditions that develop during an outpatient encounter, including emergency department, observation, or outpatient surgery, are considered POA.  The POA indicator is assigned to principal and secondary diagnoses.
