    Default Coding for Water Deprivation Testing-currently work for
    Medical Coding Books
    I currently work for an Endocrinology Association and over the last couple of weeks, I have received several requests for a CPT code for Water Deprivation Testing. Upon reviewing the CPT book, there is not a code for this type of testing. Would it be possible to receive some assistance on how others are coding this. Thank you
