Inguinal Hernia Reduction Procedure

  1. Default Inguinal Hernia Reduction Procedure
    Exam Training Packages
    I have an Emergency Medicine physician that performed an inguinal hernia reduction in the ED. Should the physician bill for the procedure or just increase EM level?

    Thanks!

    My understanding is that the reduction, if manual, is part of the E/M.
