Adding a Global Period Alert

A Global Period applies to specific procedure codes, typically surgery codes. These procedure codes have a follow-up period during which charges for normal post-operative care are bundled into the global surgery fee.

If you save a new claim with a Date Of Service (DOS) that falls within the follow up period (i.e. Global Period) of a code on a previously created claim, the Global Period Alert will appear.


  1. Select Customer Setup > Codes... > Procedure Codes.

  2. Use the Search field to find the procedure code by the CPT/HCPCS code or description. Or use the Show All button to view all codes in your local list. 

  3. Select the Procedure Code.

  4. Under Claim Defaults, use the Global Period drop-down menu to select the Global Period should take.

  5. Click Save

  6. Optional: Apply this Global Period Alert to past claims with this procedure code.
