    Exclamation elective external cardioversion w/ICD

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a patient with their own ICD is in for elective external cardioversion and only 35 joules are used, do I code just the IDC-9 procedure of 99.62 or do I also code the cpt 92960? (I code for both the hospital facility and the doctor).

    9/1/10 - I see that a few cardiology folks are on line this morning. Any suggestions for the above question?
    Thanks so much!

    10/6/10 - Please....anyone?
