As a friendly reminder, you can now add the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) code set for the third dose of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines.
The expedited approval of new administration codes that are unique to the third dose of the current COVID-19 vaccine from Moderna and Pfizer was announced by the AMA on July 30th. The codes are ready for immediate use for people with weaker immune systems who are advised to receive a 3rd vaccine dose.
Manufacturer Administration Codes:
0001A (1st dose)
0002A (2nd dose)
0003A (3rd dose)
0011A (1st dose)
0012A (2nd dose)
0013A (3rd dose)
Currently, these codes are only for use if administering 3rd doses to people with compromised immune systems. The above CPT codes are not for booster shots. Booster shots have been suggested for the general public, but those codes have not been released or approved by the FDA.
