    V62.6 Refusal of treatment for reasons of religion or conscience

    I don't know if this is what they want but it is as close as I could find.

    Hi Laura,

    But this is not a treatment, it is an exam that their refusing. The word TREATMENT I'm not sure about.

    THANKS AGAIN

    I kind of question that myself but under V62 heading it states that it includes:

    "those circumstances or fear of them, affecting the person directly involved or others, mentioned as the reason, justified or not, for seeking or receiving medical advice or care"

    I can't find anything related to refusal of exam specifically.

    Good luck,
