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.
â€¢ Single chamber pacemakers â€“ twice in the first 6 months following implant, then
once every 12 months
â€¢ Dual chamber pacemakers â€“ twice in the first 6 months following implant, then once
every 6 months
