I have a question regarding NST’s that are performed in our office. In order to bill, a provider has to read this test, correct? Also, a provider is to be en suite when we’re performing this test, right? We’re having a debate over here and need your expertise!
Please let me know.

Greetings from SuperCoder!
An NST is a simple, painless procedure to monitor a baby's heart rate in the womb. A nurse who specializes in fetal testing may perform NST but the interpretation of the test should be done by the provider and the report should have the signature of the provider, otherwise payers will deny the claim.
