Default doppler testing - cpt 93922

Can anyone help with this code? The doctor is performing this test, which is recommended by the diabetes assoc and medicare is denying the claim. Does anyone else bill this code? How is it billed?

Thanks

Default Code 93922

This is a covered Medicare code. What diagnosis are you using?
