A Fetal Non-Stress Test (CPT 59025) during pregnancy is a method for checking whether the baby is healthy and is growing well. This is usually done at 28 weeks or later. This test monitors the ability to deliver naturally, if the mom's had diagnoses that may or have complicated the pregnancy/delivery. It is important to monitor whether the patient is capable of delivering a baby naturally. If the pregnancy has complications, then doctors can advise a C section.Is NST the same as the normal/regular fetal heart monitoring done during delivery? Pretty much all deliveries involve some form of FHR monitoring, does this mean we code this every single time?
