93306 181 Denials (inappropriate code)

Half a few denials for 181 (Inappropriate code for these services) from AmeriHealth-Caritas. After speaking with them on the phone they told me that because a second study was done within a 6 month period I need to use a follow up code instead. Could anyone point me in the direction of what they may be referring to? Or is this just a write off as non covered service? Thank you in advance for your help.

follow up echo

If an echo is being done within 6 months and nothing new is found, you may want to look at 93308 with possibly adding 93321 and 93325.
