why deny code 80048 and pay for 80053?

'80048 and 80053 billed together'

If you check the bundling issue between these codes then you can see that CPT Code 80048 is a column 2 code for 80053, and these cannot be billed together in any circumstances. As per CCI edit a '0' modifier is applicable in this case.
