    I am assuming that Medicare does not list a global period since it's non-covered; although, it is 90 days.

    Effective for dates of service on or after March 17, 2005, CAS with embolic protection claims that contain procedure code 37216 (transcatheter placement of intravascular stent(s) without distal embolic protection) will not be paid. CMS has deemed procedure code 37216 a non-covered service for Medicare purposes.
