Hi there, we bill for remote pacemaker checks. We usually bill CPT codes 93294 & 93296. Do these codes have to be billed exactly 90 days apart? or can services be done and billed less or more than 90 days apart?

Remote interrogation codes 93294-93296 should be reported only once every 90 days. As per guidelines, a period is established by the initiation of the remote monitoring on the 91st day of a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter-defibrillator monitoring and extends for the subsequent 90 days for which remote monitoring is occurring. Thank you.
