From what I could find, it looks like Medicare is going to begin gathering data about the extent of post operative care being rendered to patients in 2017 but that the global periods will still be in effect until that data is available and a reliable way to report post operative care is in place.

Here are a couple of good links explaining the hold on doing away with global periods until further data is available:
