Did they denied both the codes or only E/M visit?
If they have denied only E/M visit then, it may be because evaluation and management service performed on that DOS was not significant, separately identifiable from the other procedure performed by same provider i.e. 11900.

Did you billed any other code on the same day or few days before this billing? Have they specified in their denial which other another service/procedure they are referencing to be already adjudicated?
