, it would be coded as a sequelae of the CVA which would require two codes—one for the condition or nature of the sequelae and a code for the sequelae itself,The Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting tells us that a code for the CVA (acute phase) and the code for late effect of the hemiplegia cannot be coded together on the same encounter, legs; Neurogenic bladder as late effect of cerebrovascular accident; Neurogenic bladder due to stroke; Painful hand as late effect of stroke; Painful hand, The note under this code has been revised to clarify that the late effect may occur before the “one year” time frame,
