    27603 has a 90 day global. I use the codeitrightonline.com. It has a free trial you can try but it is a yearly subscription. I really like it though.

    -click "next"
    -enter your cpt code
    -on your drop key, select "all modifiers" and process
    There is a column listed as "global" that lists the days

    I think most insurance carriers use the standard global fees. However, Medicaid may be different. I would double check with your local state to find out if they use their own.
