NST

Hello List Serv,
We are getting a lot of denials regarding NST's done in 2 different locations. We have patient's that we are doing an NST in the office for example, decreased fetal movement. NST looks good, later that evening they are going to the hospital and we are doing an NST for sometimes the same reason or something different. Of course the Insurance company (State and BCBS, UHC) will pay the lesser NST. How are people handling this? We are billing the office one with no modifier and the hospital one is 26 modifier and 77 modifier. Any thoughts on this????
Thanks for any input.
