    Question Interpreting multi nsts done on separate days

    AAPC: Back to School
    How would you code for the professional component for several nsts done on previous, separate days and read on a later date by one physician?

    to my knowledge, the date of the procedure done is to be reported . The interpretation may be done the following day or after, depending upon the time available for the Physician or the urgency. The NST procedure includes the interpretation by the physician except during labor monitoring when the interpretation and supervision could be reported separately with its sepcific code(s).
