 Message: I typically do screening at the AWV but a few patients I catch as catch can.  I've never tried to get paid but this time I did.

I submitted a 99214  for goiter, osteoporosis and anxiety
and then GO101 with Z12.39 for breast screening

I got paid zero for entire visit.

I realize I did also attach  z12.39 to the 99214
The reason for denial was service /procedure requires a qualifying service/ procedure. B15

Not sure what that means.
 I'm thinking attach z12.39 only to the G0101 and try resubmitting or I'll go back to just billing the -14 and resubmit without the G0101.

If anyone can show me how they would submit billing for this and get paid I'd appreciate it.
