Does anyone have reference documents for CPT reporting to share on Glutamic Acid Decarboxylase Autoantibody testing?

In googling information it looks like CPT code 86341, Islet cell antibody, may be appropriate but cannot find supporting coding references.

I'm unable to locate an index entry in CPT for this. Thanks for any assistance.

Hi CULINTZ,
I googled our facility's catalog and this is a send out to the Mayo Clinic for us. This may be either a serum or CSF specimen.

Let me provide their catalog's information for additional assistance.

Serum: https://www.mayocliniclabs.com/test-catalog/Fees+and+Codes/81596

CSF: https://www.mayocliniclabs.com/test-catalog/Fees+and+Codes/84221

Both are billed with procedure 86341. Please review each of their tabs for additional information.

Hopefully this is what you were searching for, if not please reach out and I can dig deeper for additional information.
Thanks for listening,
