Nerve conduction testing

  1. Default Nerve conduction testing
    Medical Coding Books
    Good Morning,
    I am a coding student and I have to do a presentation on how to properly code for NCS. I know that the policy changed and now they go by the number of studies, but how do you determine how many studies are done.

    IE If patient had a Right and Left Peroneal, a R Tibial and a Left Sural does this constitute 4 studies or just three. I am looking for some guidance. Thank you.

  2. Default Nerve conduction studies
    Hi.

    You are correct that this would be 4 studies (95908). Just keep in mind that you cannot count the same nerve twice on the same side. If it is the same nerve, but one on the right leg and one on the left leg, you can count those as two studies.
