    Question Same day ob ultrasound and nst
    Medical Coding Books
    Can an ob ultrasound and a nst be billed on the same visit? If so, would modifier 59 be appropriate? Thanks for your help.

    Yes, you can bill an ob ultrasound and NST on the same day but you will need to add modifier 59 to the NST.
