We have a patient that had a laparoscopic ablation of endometriosis and drainage of cyst on right ovary(which we have to appeal because insurance bundled) and patient has been complaining of pain. She had a CT and an incisional hernia was discovered. The provider wants to open up the incision and re-close it in the office. Would we just code this with the appropriate repair CPT code, based on location, size and simple, intermediate or complex? Thank you! Cathy

Yes, that sounds right for an office procedure, but you won't know which to use until the procedure is actually performed and you see the amount of work, size of repair, etc. Refresh your memory on the what constitutes a complex repair though as the work is much more involved than a layered closure would be.
