I believe you are missing a modifier but I can't really say because I don't have access to the patient's chart.  It would be irresponsible to advise what modifier simply to get the claim paid without knowing if the notes warrant the modifier.  But if you read information on the 64405 and the 20552 billed together you will see that a modifier is needed if they are separate identifiable procedures, which we cannot tell from the information given.

Those two modifiers have entirely different descriptions, and only one fits your scenario, if the documentation supports it. Reread the descriptions for each VERY carefully, and you will answer your own question.
