" However, accurately associating immunized clients with one of the offered COVID-19 vaccines is important for handling immunizations. This difficulty is handled with special CPT codes that scientifically distinguish each COVID-19 vaccine and offer the required informative accuracy to make sure optimum vaccine circulation and administration." The Novavax COVID-19 vaccine joins other COVID-19 vaccines from Astra, Zeneca, Janssen (Johnson & Johnson), Moderna and Pfizer that were formerly released distinct CPT codes to clinically differentiate each vaccine and immunization administration for much better tracking, reporting and analysis that supports data-driven preparation and allocation.
The AMA's COVID-19 vaccine coder resource will be updated to consist of the brand-new CPT codes produced for the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine. For quick referral, the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine has been assigned the following Classification I CPT code and long descriptor: 91304 Severe severe breathing syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-Co, V-2) (coronavirus illness [COVID-19] vaccine, recombinant spike protein nanoparticle, saponin-based adjuvant, preservative complimentary, 5 mcg/0.
This CPT code is used to report the actual work of administering the vaccine, in addition to all required therapy offered to clients or caregivers and updating the electronic record. For quick referral, the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine has been assigned the following vaccine administration CPT codes and long descriptors: 0041A Immunization administration by intramuscular injection of severe acute breathing syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-Co, V-2) (coronavirus disease [COVID-19] vaccine, recombinant spike protein nanoparticle, saponin-based adjuvant, preservative complimentary, 5 mcg/0.
5m, L dosage; second dosage Short, medium and long descriptors for all the new vaccine-specific CPT codes can be accessed on the AMA site, together with several other current adjustments to the CPT code set that have helped simplify the public health response to the SARS-Co, V-2 infection and the COVID-19 illness.
This rigorous editorial procedure keeps the CPT code set present with contemporary medical science and innovation so it can fulfill its important role as the relied on language of medicine today and the code to its future. ### Concerns on CPT coding and material must be directed to the CPT Network, the reliable source for CPT coding answers.
