fetal non-stress test

    On occasion our OBG doctors have to go to the hospital to do a fetal non-stress test on our pregnant women. We have used the 59025 code. Sometimes the doctor will get it sent over via fax to interpet is this the correct code to use or is there an "interpeting" code we should be using? Does the hospital have a different code they use for the use of their machines.

    If the NST was done at a facility and my ob doc is only interpreting, then I bill 59025 with a modifier 26 (professional component).

    Our hospital also uses the 59025 for the hospital side for the use of the machines.
