Hernia Repair Coding Resources for Surgeons

Effective in 2023, new CPT codes are available to report anterior abdominal hernia repair, including umbilical, ventral, incisional, epigastric, spigelian, and parastomal hernias, regardless of the surgical approach used. These codes are based on the total size of all hernias and have a 0-day global period. The work RVUs for the new codes have not been reduced, but rather account only for the work on day of surgery. Postoperative care is now separately billable. The resources on this page were developed by the 鶹ýto help you understand this new coding paradigm.
