Elective cardioversion--physician vs hospital billing.

    Default Elective cardioversion--physician vs hospital billing.
    Medical Coding Books
    I am a new coder, coding for a cardiologist who is performing elective cardioversion in a hospital cath lab. I have been told by the hospital that they bill 92960 and that the physician bills a "G" code, although she wasn't certain what G code. However my understanding is that the 92960 (a global code without TC/26 component) reflects the physician services of an elective external cardioversion and what I have read in this forum seems to substantiate this. If the physician does bill 92960, then what specific codes does the hospital bill. I have tried to locate a HCPCS level II code without any luck. If anyone out there can help clarify this for me, I would be extremely greatful.

    Thanks

    Both the physician's office and the hospital should report 92960.
