We have a physician that wants to start ordering a mixed meal test. Process will be to draw the following labs every 30 minutes for 5 hours glucose, BMP, Insulin, Proinsulin, C-Peptide, and Beta- Hydroxybutyrate every 30 minutes. Is anyone else performing these? Do you bill the test with the following Glucose 82951 and 82952 x 7, BMP 80048 x10, Insulin 83525 x10, Proinsulin 84206 x10, C-peptide 84681 x10, and Beta- hydroxybutyrate 82010 x10. If you perform this, how do you handle MUE denials?
