10060 bundled with 99214

I keep getting a denial from Medicare stating that the CPT® 10060 our doctor did is bundled with their E/M 99214. However the patients main reason for the visit was to deal with a separate chronic issue and the I&D was just mentioned during the visit and they decided to do while patient was in the office. Is there a certain way to bill out the 10060 with a 99214? I tried using Mod 25 but no help. Thanks

I assume linked to the ICD-9 for the 10060 was not linked to the 99214 and there was no dx with the 99214 that could be associated with an abscess?

If 10060 truly is bundling with the E/M, you have correctly billed with modifier 25, however, a lot of insurances are cracking down on this scenario looking for medical notes to justify billing them together. You'll find that you will have to appeal these a lot, to show that the visit was a separate encounter from the procedure.
