Hi all, I'm scheduled to take my test on Saturday (2 days!) I am wondering if anyone knows of a resource where I can obtain a list of codes that do nothave a global period attached to them. (For example-I got a question wrong coding a chest tube placement because I used the postop modifier...I did not know that code didn't have a postop period and don't know how to find that info). Thanks in advance!

No, it was either 58 or 78 (can't remember off the top of my head just now). It was a procedure done 4 days after another procedure. At any rate, the answer said there is no global period for chest tube placement.
