Thread: 43280 includes hiatal hernia repair?

  1. #1

    Question 43280 includes hiatal hernia repair?

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a few physicians in my dept that do Laparoscopic hiatal hernia repairs with a Nissen fundoplication. Can someone please tell me if 43280 includes the hiatal hernia repair in this code? I've seen resources that tell me this does include hiatal hernia repair (not to be confused with paraesophageal hernia repair) and others that have mentioned to use an unlisted code. Help anyone?

    I have a similar post in the gastro section that I am still waiting on for a reply. When/if I get one, I'll let you know and maybe it will be helpful to us both
