Coding For Alpha-Fetoprotein Testing

My clinic is looking into implementing Alpha-Fetoprotein (AFP) testing. I understand there is currently no CPT code listed for this testing as it is not considered medically necessary-is that correct? Also, if there is currently no CPT coding, what code would be used? And lastly, if there is no CPT coding then we cannot bill insurance so can we bill patients?
