The CPT codes below are for acupuncture with electrical stimulation does that mean the electrical stimulation is included or I can bill the acupuncture plus the electrical stimulation code.
Acupuncture, 1 or more needles; with electrical stimulation, initial 15 minutes of personal one-on-one contact with the patient
Acupuncture, 1 or more needles; with electrical stimulation, each additional 15 minutes of personal one-on-one contact with the patient, with re-insertion of needle(s) (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure)

97813 and 97814 are codes which includes: Acupuncture (with needles) & Electrical Stimulation. You don't need a separate code for electrical stimulation here.
