How often can 97001 be billed within 1 year period? Is there a time frame? Is it by referral based on body part. Is there an edit or guideline on the usage of 97001?

Yes, you can bill it with the span of one year as well. But, usually offices does not delay the process of billing because of payment issues.
According to the AMA, code 97001 include the assessment of the patient, the documentation of the entire evaluation process, as well as the direct contact time spent performing the test or evaluation.
