I don't agree that a medical necessary injection (or any other procedure) would not be billable even in a global period. Perhaps I am misunderstanding your question.
A hospital is not allowed to bill for routine injections or medications related to a surgery during the performance of or recovery from the surgery, but this is different than a global period.
I'm sure you are familiar with the modifiers available to describe services rendered during periods that may or may not be related to a surgery (58, 76, 77, 78, 79).
Again, I think I am confused by your question so my post could be totally unrelated to your situation, and I do apologize if that's the case.
