    Question NST dates of service help?
    Medical Coding Books
    It was brought to my attention this morning that when coding a fetal Non Stress Test, my coders are using the day the test was interpreted (not the DOS of the actual NST) as the date of service for the claim. I think this is incorrect, but am having a hard time finding documentation to back that up. Does anyone know of any articles that state the proper procedure for dates that an interpretation was done? Thank you!
