Hi,

I am trying to find out the global periods for cardiology procedures. For instance, is the global period for catheterizations 10 days and does that include the discharge? Is there a web site or resource that lists the global periods for cardiology?

I am an apprentice coder and new to cardiology coding. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
MMC

I'm not sure where you are located, but you can usually find this information on the CMS website. Other alternatives are the CPT expert which shows global days (I beleive), I use the Encoder Professional to look at global days as well as lots of other useful info.

global days

Actually Heart Caths or EP/Ablations have no global periods. Your devices like Pacers and Icd would have a 90 day global. I do believe CMS would have that information.
I hope ths helps.

Could you please provide the link to where you found this information. I looked high and low on the CMS website and I couldn't find it. This is information I have needed for a while.

Thank you
