Reason Code 5DTDP: Dependent Services Denied (Qualifying Service Denied Technically)
Reason for Denial
The dependent services will not be covered if the qualifying surgery has been denied. For example, the surgical procedure was not documented, therefore all other charges cannot be allowed.
To Prevent This Denial
Documentation that may be helpful to avoid future denials for this reason may include, but is not limited to, all documentation to support orders, documentation of services rendered and the medical necessity of qualifying services for the date(s) billed.
