AMA releases CPT codes for pediatric COVID-19 vaccine

Wednesday, October 13, 2021

The AMA on October 6 issued new Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes for pediatric doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.

The new codes are as follows:

  • 91307: Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (coronavirus disease [COVID-19]) vaccine, mRNA-LNP, spike protein, preservative free, 10 mcg/0.2 mL dosage, diluent reconstituted, tris-sucrose formulation, for intramuscular use
  • 0071A: Immunization administration by intramuscular injection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (coronavirus disease [COVID-19]) vaccine, mRNA-LNP, spike protein, preservative free, 10 mcg/0.2 mL dosage, diluent reconstituted, tris-sucrose formulation; first dose
  • 0072A: Immunization administration by intramuscular injection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (coronavirus disease [COVID-19]) vaccine, mRNA-LNP, spike protein, preservative free, 10 mcg/0.2 mL dosage, diluent reconstituted, tris-sucrose formulation; second dose

 

The new CPT codes will become effective if the FDA issues approval or emergency use authorization for Pfizer’s two-dose COVID-19 vaccine in children ages five to 11. Revenue integrity professionals should ensure the codes are ready to be deployed in chargemasters if approval or emergency use authorization is granted.
