    Default global period-facility vs profession

    AAPC: Back to School
    In the ED setting does the global periiod apply only to the pro side??? I was told today that the facilty side doesn't count and you can charge for packing removal etc. on the facility side. Please advise.

    global applies only to the physician, facility has no global for any procedure.
