Billing for a Colonoscopy

I am billing out CPT® code 45378 with a 99144 for sedation. The sedation charge is getting denied. Can someone clarify to me if this is correct or are there modifiers I should be using? It is just a routine screening colonospy with sedation. Any input would be appreciated. Thank You

re: Billing for a Colonoscopy

Code 99144 cannot be billed. It is inclusive to procedure. CCI edit and no modifier is permitted to bypass this edit.
