    Question Procedure Global Periods

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am trying to find information/liturature on the global periods for various procedures (cardiology) and i am not having much success. I was told that this could be found on CMS website but I haven't been able to locate anything there.

    Can anyone direct me where I can find this information, please?

    Thank you in Advance!!!

    Global periods can be found on the Medicare fee schedule.

    You have to accept and then periodically it will time you out after so many times of looking at codes, yet it is fabulous and gives RVU's too!
