AMA finalizes CPT codes for COVID-19 boosters

AMA finalizes CPT codes for COVID-19 boosters

By Katie Adams for Becker’s Hospital Review

The American Medical Association said Aug. 16 the Current Procedural Terminology code set is ready for third doses of Pfizer’s and Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccines.

The FDA on Aug. 12 amended the emergency use authorizations for Pfizer’s and Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccines, allowing for a third booster dose in immunocompromised people. A COVID-19 booster plan for Americans who are not immunocompromised could come as early as this fall, according to people familiar with the effort.

The AMA published a CPT code for a third dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine July 30. It is 0003A. Now the AMA has also published one for a third dose of Moderna’s vaccine, and it is 0013A.
