    Question Repair of multiple ventral hernias

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is it appropriate to bill for more than one ventral hernia repair done at the same session?

    Appreciate any advice. Thank you

    I posted this same question several weeks ago. I was informed it is ok, However; you would have to append modifier 76 and 59 to the second PX, and also submit the report with the claim. I was also informed to be prepared for an appeal, because it may get denied. Hope this helps!
