    Default pacermaker check over 5 years

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can any point me to documentation that states that pacemakers can be checked 1x a month if they are 5 years or older.

    The best place to find the guidelines is @ the CMS website; cms.hhs.gov

    Under TOP 10 LINKS

    click on
    1. Manuals
    2. Paper-Based Manual
    3. publication #6 - coverage issues manual
    It will give you the guidelines for testing pacemakers. Also, check with your pacemaker reps and they should also have the guidelines.

    Good luck,

    Dolores, CCC-CPC
