    Default Global days

    No global days for heart caths.
    ICD's and pacers have a 90 day global

    Caths have a 0 day global which means same day global, pacers and ICD have 90 day globals. I'm not sure how your MAC works, but normally you can find associated global days in the fee schedule on your MAC's website. If you can't find it there you should be able to look it up on the cms.gov website; search: Federal Register 2010 (current year). Hope this helps
