    how aften can you monitor a remote device after meeting the necessary requirement? Daily, every 10days, 30days, or 90days. i know you can only bill every 90 days. but what about monitoring?

    thank you

    This is what I found in my Dr. Z book about cardiac device monitoring. Hope this is what you are looking for!

    Medicare has national guidelines indicating the normal frequency of pacemaker monitoring in a face-to-face setting that is expected to occur under routine follow-up. Patient-specific indicators may warrant more frequent monitoring.
    • Single chamber pacemakers – twice in the first 6 months following implant, then
    once every 12 months
    • Dual chamber pacemakers – twice in the first 6 months following implant, then once
    every 6 months


    Thanks,
