    Question Adenosine Cardioversion

    AAPC: Back to School
    How would you code for a cardioversion by adenosine? I see the codes for electrical cardioversion, but not by medication. HELP?

    Default Adenosine Cardioversion

    I believe the correct code to use would be 90774.

    I believe you can only use that code if the doctor actually administers the drug. In a lot of situations the doctor does not do that. Make sure you ask your doctors if they administer the drug or does a nurse/tech.
