Thread: Nerve Testing

  1. #1

    Default Nerve Testing

    AAPC: Back to School
    the doctor does nerve testing: 95900,95903 and 95904. 95900 was denied stating this procedure/service is not paid separately.

    I just want to confirm my answer. In the CPT book under

    95900 nerve conduction, amplitude and latency/velocity study, each nerve; motor, without F-wave study

    95903 motor, with F-wave study

    If you do the nerve test with and without F-wave study, you would only use 95903.

    Is this correct? Thanks for any help.

    ok so i am new to this area and i am not sure how to bill the code 95904

    why do you use units?

    as i read the cpt book you only bill 95904 regardless of the number of sites tested.
