Help with 17000 & 17003

I billed for 99214 with 25 modifier; 17000(one unit) and 17003 (4 units). The provider removed 5 lesions in all - actinic keratosis. No payment received for the removal. They paid for the visit. What did I do wrong??

Thanks!

Work in office that frequently bills this scenario, looks correct to me if
other DX's support the E/M.

What exactly did the EOB state as the denial reason?

I would have used a different diagnosis for the office visit. Nothing wrong with your procedure coding if you had the correct diagnosis code attached.
