    Default Fetal Non Stress Tests - the number of units to use for CPT 59025

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm hoping someone could help me with the number of units to use for CPT 59025. Is is suppose to be 1 unit per date of service or do the units pertain to time, i.e 7 hours would be 7 units? I have gotten conflicting information from different people I have asked.

    You will bill only 1 unit per day.

    We do one unit. This is a test that could take 40 minutes or several hours. We just use it once.
    Anyone else?
