19102 is a deleted code for 2014.

I meant 19083. Since it is a procedure, it there anything to bill on the technical side?

19083 does not divide into professional and technical components as it is a "physician services code" on the MPFS. The payment rate differs based on whether the physician reports the code for a facility or non-facility setting. So if you're reporting 19083 for a non-facility setting you get extra reimbursement to cover the added costs. If the procedure takes place in a facility, then the physician gets lower reimbursement and the facility can report the service using the appropriate method.
