    Need help in finding cpt code for a ventral hernia repair with mesh and umbilectomy. Can we bill seperately?? Thanks,

    Default

    49561 for incarcerated ventral hernia
    49568 for implantation of mesh
    49250 for umbilectomy-according to my program shows is bundled into 49561 and is to never be unbundled
    Also, I found out last year we can bill for the implant L8699. Butr you may already know that.

    So I would use 49561 49568 & L8699

    Hope this helps.
