    Someone may have a more user friendly site, but here's one:

    http://www.cms.hhs.gov/pfslookup/02_...es&next=Accept

    Go to:
    -choose how many codes you want to search (single, list or range)
    -Payment Policy Indicators (click next)
    -click next
    -Enter your cpt code
    -On the "modifier" drop key, select "all modifiers"
    -click "submit"
    -There is a "global" column that provides the days

    It's the physician fee schedule.

    Hit accept then there are criteria to enter.
    Ensure you have "all columns' showing as global period is on the far right of the total table.
