1.Download the most current physician fee schedule from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services website at www.cms.gov.

2 Find your desired CPT code and look at the "global period" column for its corresponding global period.

3 Use CMS' physician fee schedule search on the website. The application allows you to look up single codes or multiples. On the modifier pull-down bar on the bottom of the page, select "Global."

4 Call the patient's health insurer if you are dealing with a health plan which doesn't mirror CMS global period rules. In that situation, you have to get the answer directly from the provider.

5 Call CMS to order a print version of the physician fee schedule if downloading or online searching isn't comfortable or accessible for you. If you rely on a print schedule from CMS, then you'll need to check regularly for any updates or changes. Online searches will give you the most updated CMS information

looking up global days

Hi Srinivas,

I remember there being a global days column in the physician fee schedule, but I have downloaded every PFS file I can find and do not see it. It used to have "090", "010", "000" for same day, or "XXX" for n/a.

Thanks,
zoolug
