If the doctor interpreted a non-stress test performed on a mother with twins, I know it would be coded 59025-26, however would you do this times 2 since it was twins?

We post it on two lines (or how many ever is needed for multiples) with mod-59 on the second/subsequent NSTs.

Some insurance companies still require documentation that multiples were done, even with a diagnosis code to indicate a multiple gestation.

Watch your carrier payment. We have one that requires one line, without a 59 modifier and use 2 units. Backwards, I know, all my other carriers accept it how it should be coded but we have one that is just....ummm, different.
