you can bill for each nerve tested. bill the appropriate code just change the unit amount
99503 &99504 are modifier 51 exempt
for bilateral
you would report the code twice and use LT and RT
if you would like some paper work/documentation on this stuff email me and i will attach it in an email for you
bigredcag@hotmail.com
hope this helps
