    Can anyone explain why 99244 is being denied as inclusive to 20553?

    Thanks for all of your help!

    Assuming all the components were met for both codes, was modifier 25 attached to the E/M?

    no, modifier 25 was not attached.

    I would append modifier 25 to the E/M and re-submit as a corrected claim.
