V02.938S is a sequela code, includes a 7th character and should be used for complications that arise as a direct result of a condition like pedestrian on other standing micro-mobility pedestrian conveyance injured in collision with two- or three wheeled motor vehicle unspecified whether traffic or nontraffic accident. 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.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like V02.938S are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.
