    Default Need help with billing OB Ultrasound/Non Stress Test

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know the correct way to bill 76815-76817 with a Fetal Non Stress Test without the Stress Test being bundled into the Ultra sound? We are getting way to many denials on this and are not sure if a .59 modifier is the correct way to bill the Stress Test.

    We bill our NST w/modifier 59 in these situations and get them paid.

    Thanks Kelly, I am new at the coding end of this and I felt that might be the correct modifier, but wasn't sure. I didn't want to send out incorrect information.
