1. Coding of Nerve Conduction Studies in 2013

Nerve conduction studies are a valuable clinical tool in the localization and diagnosis of many peripheral nerve conditions including carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetic polyneuropathy, peripheral nerve entrapments, plexus injuries, etc.  Even though the new codes are based on the total number of tests performed, coders will still need to know what constitutes a single nerve conduction study in order to compliantly bill for their provider’s services. What if your physician documents that she performs both the orthodromic and antidromic testing?  Should you count those as separate tests? What is H-reflex testing?  Does that diagnostic testing remain separately billable in 2013?
