What modifier should be used for a repeat procedure by a different physician during a global period. Example: patient had cpt code 14040 performed by a physician. During the global period, he chose to go to a different group of providers and had to have it done again

As per the documentation, you should append modifier 77 (Repeat Procedure by Another Physician or Other Qualified Health Care Professional) to the procedure code performed by the provider of different group.
