It's possible that the carrier does not agree that this falls within your providers scope of practice.

Nerve conduction studies (NCS)

These tests are usually administered by a neurologist (a doctor who specializes in the study of the nerves) or a physiatrist (a specialist in rehabilitation medicine).

I would contact your carrier (credentialing dept) for additional information.
