Default

49561 for incarcerated ventral hernia
49568 for implantation of mesh
49250 for umbilectomy-according to my program shows is bundled into 49561 and is to never be unbundled
Also, I found out last year we can bill for the implant L8699. Butr you may already know that.

So I would use 49561 49568 & L8699

Hope this helps.
