    Question TEE guided Cardioeversion

    AAPC: Back to School
    How would you code a TEE guided Cardioeversion done in the hospital on an inpatient?

    If the doctor placed probe and dictated that "M-mode, pulsed wave and color doppler" with the cardioversion you would bill:
    TEE: 93312 Insertion of the probe
    add on code: 93320 pulse wave
    Add on code: 93325 Color doppler
    CV: 92960

    Or if your doctor did NOT place the probe:
    TEE: 93314 then any of the above add on codes that were dictated with the CV code.

    Most of the time our doctors only dictate that they placed the probe and complete study with color doppler was done with CV dictation (attempts, joules...) so we normally use the 93312, 93325 and the 92960.

    Oh and don't forget to add your 26 to the TEE codes.
