I have submitted a claim to Medicare 99213-25 and 64450
Medicare is denying the 64450 since its included in the 99213
Can it be submitted seperatlty or its included??

Normallly E/M visits are included in the procedure code unless it is significatly separate identifiable with modifier -25 appended. I believe it should be paid. Kindly re-appeal.
