    Default Supraumbilical hernia repair

    AAPC: Back to School
    For a Supraumbilical hernia repair would it be umbical rpr 49505 or I heard somewhere that it should be ventral repair 49560.
    Thank you,

    The cpt for umbilical hernias is 49580-49587. For a supraumbilical hernia, you would use the codes for Ventral hernia. 49560-49566 depending on the type of hernia.
    49505 is for an inguinal hernia.

    Thank you, that's what I meant 49585 not the 49505.
