Nerve conduction study

Linda Posted Tue 19th of August, 2014 15:34:00 PM

Can you bill an office visit with nerve conduction study when patient has been referred for study? Also, how do you bill 95886 for 2 limbs when billing Medicare? 95886 x 2 units or 95886 x 1, 95886(59) x 1 for second limb?

Yes, you may bill office visit consultation codes (99241-99245) for the E/M service provided on the day of nerve conduction study. Also, append modifier 25 with the billed code. Modifier 25 represents 'significant, separately identifiable evaluation and management (E/M) services by the same physician on the same day of the procedure or other service'.

You will get reimbursement for E/M service only, if the documentation supports the modifier 25.

Also, bill 95886 x 2 units for EMG performed on each extremity.

Thanks !!
