    Default Hernia Repairs - Initial and Recurrent

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need some help with coding initial hernia repairs and recurrent hernia repairs when they are being done at the same visit.

    I have an OP reports that states 6 recurrent hernias were repaired and also 2 initial hernias were repaired. Can you bill for each hernia?
