Mental health services rendered in POS -23

Issue:

Mental health carrier denied stating the CPT® codes 99281 - 99285 are invalid CPT® codes and the DX codes billed for mental health. Please suggest me solution for possible reimbursement on these services. Thank you for your consideration.

I'm not sure why the choice was made not to use 90839-90840 (Psychotherapy for Crisis) for a Mental Health contact - whether in the ER/ED or elsewhere? Is there more info that swayed you in the 99281 direction?
