    Question Where can I find the current rules for global days for codes 11043+11044?

    AAPC: Back to School
    My 2011 Procedural Coding Expert book says "zero" global days for debridement codes 11043 and 11044. I have found other resources that say 10 days. Where can I find the most accurate information on this subject?

    I use the link below, it has the global days for every procedure.

    Good Luck!

    The global days changed to zero for 2011. The Federal Register is an authorative guide.

    It takes a couple of minutes for both to download.
