If you read the guidelines on modifier 25, you will see that it is only used on E/M codes. See here:

If I am understanding your post correctly, you are not being paid for 97110, 97112, and 97150, but only for the E/M code. The reasons for this can be numerous...if you want help on that, you need to elucidate on the denial, including what insurance was billed, dxs used, etc.
