How would you code EMG 95886 x 3 for Medicare?

When billing for two or more units of 95886, code as two line items appending modifier 59 to the second.

Does this rule apply to Medicaid as well?

Yes, code 95886 is for reporting a complete study, per extremity, performed with NCS tests (95907-95913). This is as per CPT guidelines.
Codes 95885 & 95886 can be reported together up to a combined total of 4 units of service per patient when all 4 extremities are tested.
