    Question repair of the diastasie recti

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anybody know if there is a spcific code that should be reported for the repair of the diastasie recti in conjunction with umbilical hernia repair done by a general surgeon.

    My understanding is that I would bill CPT Code 49585 and the corresponding ICD-9 code for that procedure.and the diastasis recti procedure as CPT 49999 - Unlisted Procedure. Any help would be great!!!! Thanks in advance.
