The following was performed:
Right Sup Peron Anti Sensory
Left Sural Anti Sensory
Right Sural Anti Sensory
Left Peroneal Motor
Right Peroneal Motor
Left Tibial Motor
Right Tibial Motor

H Reflex Studies
Left Tibial (Gastroc)
Right Tibial (Gastroc)

Provider stays that code is 95911 (9-10) studies, because he counts H-Reflexes as 2 separate studies.
The coder states that the code is 95910 (7-8) studies, because H –Reflexes are not billed separately.
I would appreciate anyone help on correct number of studies to be reported.

Codes 95907-95913 describe one or more nerve conduction studies. For the purposes of coding a single conduction study is defined as a sensory conduction test, a motor conduction test with or without an F wave test or an H-relfex test. ...
