Thanks in advance for your response

I have never had a 'chemical' cardioversion; its always been electrical, 92960. I would love to hear your thought though. I'm curious what could be used.

Physicians can't bill for the infusion therapy itself. Since chemical cardioversion is a procedure that generally takes place in the acute care setting, rather than the office, it is considered a facility charge, not a physician charge. The physician charge is included in the E&M service provided. For the facility, you will bill it as infusion therapy.
