H2017 Medicare equivalent?

Hello! So, I had a patient call regarding Medicare denying our ARMHS code, H2017. She called Medicare and said I submitted it incorrectly. When I called Medicare, they said that the code had an "I" next to it and I'm submitting the wrong code.

Is there an equivalent Medicare approved code that would cover this type of service? Or am I getting mixed answers?

We skip Medicare when we bill our ARMHS codes. All of our secondary (MA/PMAP) payers pay without it going to Medicare, first.
