Code Classification

  • Diseases of the circulatory system (I00–I99)
    • Cerebrovascular diseases (I60-I69)
      • Sequelae of cerebrovascular disease (I69)

I69.0 is a non-specific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of sequelae of nontraumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage. The code is not specific and is NOT valid for the year 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. Category or Header define the heading of a category of codes that may be further subdivided by the use of 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th characters.

I69.0 is a sequela code, includes a 7th character and should be used for complications that arise as a direct result of a condition like e of nontraumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage. According to ICD-10-CM Guidelines a "sequela" code should be used for chronic or residual conditions that are complications of an initial acute disease, illness or injury. The most common sequela is pain. Usually, two diagnosis codes are needed when reporting sequela. The first code describes the nature of the sequela while the second code describes the sequela or late effect.

Specific Coding for Sequelae of nontraumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage

Non-specific codes like I69.0 require more digits to indicate the appropriate level of specificity. Consider using any of the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity when coding for sequelae of nontraumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage:

Information for Patients


Hemorrhagic Stroke

A stroke is a medical emergency. There are two types - ischemic and hemorrhagic. Hemorrhagic stroke is the less common type. It happens when a blood vessel breaks and bleeds into the brain. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die. Causes include a bleeding aneurysm, an arteriovenous malformation (AVM), or an artery wall that breaks open.

Symptoms of stroke are

It is important to treat strokes as quickly as possible. With a hemorrhagic stroke, the first steps are to find the cause of bleeding in the brain and then control it. Surgery may be needed. Post-stroke rehabilitation can help people overcome disabilities caused by stroke damage.
