    Default facility billing global period

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm coding for a postop visit after an inpt stay for a laminectomy and discectomy (icd-9 vol 3 80.51 code ) . I am trying to figure out where I can a list of global periods to see if this should be a no charge postop visit.

    I don't know anything about facility coding and billing, but if the global periods are the same as for providers, here is a link to a chart with the global periods for all CPT's. They can also be found in the RBRVS book if you have 1 of those. http://www.pinnaclemedicare.com/prov...e2011b.pdf?r=3

    Hope this helps!
