ohh...a procedure code! :) well, what exactly did they do? could you post the op note? if they did the repair to the separated rectus abdominus - I"m not finding a code either :( I wonder if you'll have to use a "close" code with a reduced modifier (52) OR - a unlisted code (and the hassle of documentation etc...)

tough question!

Actually, procedure has not been done yet but the plan is to repair the separation. We were trying to dertimine code for prior authorization. I was thinking, I would have to use an unlisted code and send documentation but wanted to get another opinion. Thanks for your help.
