59025- Missing Mod Denial

  1. Default 59025- Missing Mod Denial
    Medical Coding Books
    I received a denial for "modifier missing or inconsistent w/proc" for CPT 59025. A modifier wasn't billed with this CPT and I am unable to identify which modifier needs to be added. POS is Office. Insurance is Commercial.

    A modifier is usually not required when the NST is done in the office. If it's done in the hospital then you'd use a 26. Is the diagnosis correct? I would call the insurance to question this.

    Did you also bill an OB ultrasound code on the same DOS? If yes, you may want to check your CCI edits.
