    Default Fetal Non Stress Tests - I am billing a twin delivery with 9 NSTs

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello, I am new to OB/GYN. I am billing a twin delivery with 9 NSTs. My physican owns her equipment. Can I bill all of these? Also, do I include these in my count for the number of prenatal visits? Thanks!

    NST's should be billed at the time of service rather than waiting until delivery but you can bill 59025 twin A, 59025-59 twin B for each NST provided using the correct date of service as long as these were done in the office. If they were done in the hospital you would use -26.
