Medicare deny my claims lately, can anyone help me to understand the billing process for this code? What changed? Thank you.

Did you have an exam the same day, if so did you put a modifier on it? Did you use the correct diagnosis on your cessation?

Yes, I billed the evaluation with the modifier 25, dx: F17.200, Z71.6;
it worked in 2017, but now something new came up, probably, do you know what is it?
