How often can this code be billed. If the patient comes with the complaint of chest pain, shortness of breath every month can we bill the in for two or three months in a row ?

Our cardiologist does echocardiograms once every year as indicated as follow up to valve diseases, aortic stenosis surveillance. In some cases, pulmonary hypertension surveillance is done once or twice a year. In my experience, unless you are specifically checking for ejection fraction changes, checking for medication response, insurances frown upon a monthly echocardiogram. If we perform echocardiograms within a year, we only do a limited echo for the subsequent one.
