    I'm auditing a gastro - he's billing for 83014 without the 83013 - is that possible?

    Thanks,

    Oh ok sorry my brain was in a totally different spot. As far as I am aware it can be billed without the 83013, I have nothing in my bag of tricks.. my list of things you cannot do!.. that says this cannot be done. Maybe someone else knows differently.

    I looked it up in an Ingenix book of Px, and it says that 83014 is the administration of an isotope and sample collection (what sample?) and 83013 is for the breath test analysis. Does that mean that the 83014 is done in the OV, and they should be sending out the 83013?
