    Question nsts/ob pkg

    AAPC: Back to School
    Where does it say that NSTs are included in the global package? CPT says
    to bill separately.

    I have never seen where it states you can not bill for NST. I bill them all the time 59025 and get paid. Tammy CPC Grass Valley CA

    Link your NST to your problem dx to support the NST and they will pay it outside the global...some carriers require certain high risk codes to support the NST
