    Question Lap chole w incidental umb hernia

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone tell me if we can bill for an incidental umbilical hernia repair done at the time of a lap chole. The umbilical hernia was used for the trocar access and repaired afterwards.

    Default Lap Chole with Umbilical Hernia Repair

    I would love to hear some feedback on this same issue. Is anyone billing for both a lap chole and an umbilical hernia repair and getting reimbursed on both?
