Global Periods in an ASC

  1. Smile Global Periods in an ASC

    Does anyone have any documentation to show there is NO global period in an ASC? I have an Ohio Medicaid plan denying claims for "global". Any assistance would be helpful.
    Thank you

    I believe it is on the CMS website (not very user friendly I'm afraid). When I looked it up a while back, the ASC's facility global period was the day of surgery, if you are coding for the physician it is the 0-10-90 global period. But this depends on which procedure you are doing. Hope this helps.

    Thank you- I have been on that CMS website and never feel very "educated" when Im done - I need to find documentation to send to Medicaid for an appeal - I'll keep looking.

    perhaps they are processing it with the wrong place of service. ASC is 24. And yes our global is the day of service.

    See if you can use some of that info...

    good luck

    Was wondering if anyone has any info regarding this? I can't find anything in CMS and need proof for a denial.
