AMA announces CPT codes for COVID-19 vaccines

NCPA November 24, 2020

The American Medical Association has published a set of CPT codes for reporting administration of COVID-19 vaccine. These CPT codes are unique for two SARS-CoV-2 vaccines so far, and administration codes are unique to each vaccine and first and second doses. The codes and descriptions are available in this announcement and will be used for billing Medicare Part B or other payers that require them. The NCPDP Emergency Preparedness task group is expected to publish guidance in December on billing no-cost-product vaccine claims to PBMs when they are the processor a plan is using.
