In brief: It does not

However it is quite possible that the CHF is what is causing the cough not the otherway around, on the other hand some drugs that treat CHF can also cause cough and are called ace inhibitors , and if that is the case then ask your doctor to replace it.

In brief: Symptom, not cause

A hacking cough can be a symptom of chf.
To my knowledge, a cough is not a cause of chf.
