Aphasia, Dysphasia, and Hemiparesis

  1. Default Aphasia, Dysphasia, and Hemiparesis
    Medical Coding Books
    Documentation states: Status Post CVA with Dysphasia/Hemiparesis and Excessive Aphasia. Would I code 438.12, 438.20, and 438.11? I am so confused.

    Default Status Post CVA with late effects
    Yes , you are using the correct codes as the Aphasia , Dysphasia and Hemiplegia are late effects from the CVA after (status post).
