billing Lap chole with ventral hernia.

The only way I bill these together is if after the Dr. does the Lap Chole, he then removes the trocars and either enlarges the same incision or makes a new incision to repair the hernia. If he repairs the hernia through that same incison as the lap chole I do not bill it separate. Then if ins. denies you can have a fight as to why these should be billed separate.
