Does anyone know how to bill for a repair of the diactus/rectus muscle with mesh following excision of the abdominal wall? Can only find mesh repair for hernia.

There is no code for this repair with mesh. You will have to use an unlisted code. If the doctor is doing a lipectomy 15830 with abdominoplasty 15847 that code (15847) includes the fascial plication (repair of rectus muscle - but, it does not include mesh.)
