I'm trying to find a code for cognitive impairment due to head injury, but G31.84 "Mild cognitive impairment, so stated" excludes "cognitive impairment due to intracranial or head injury (S06.-)". S06.xxxx only describes the actual brain injury, but that leaves me stuck on how to code the mild cognitive impairment as a sequelae since the actual head injury is an exclusion and I can't code them together! I'm totally stuck on how to proceed. Anyone have any idea how this would be coded?
