Hi All,
Was wondering if someone has some good experience with coding reg's for Ambulatory EEG's. Found some good info. so far, but have some follow up ?'s.

If using 95953 - does the provider need to add in their note that they did the awake/sleep EEG prior?
With same code above - for the units (for example 47 hours - can we enter the 2 units or does it have to be exact? Or, if 64 hours can we add the 3 units or do we code each day? For example: "Continuous EEG monitoring began on 11/11/16 at 15:37 hours and ended on 11/13/16 at 10:21 hours = to 64 hours recording time. Would we code the 95953 each of 11/11, 11/12 and 11/13 and units based on hours each day?

Lastly, I hope. If they do any recording then should we just code 95951 rather than the 95953?

Hope this all makes sense?

TIA,
