Posted October 31, 2023

The American Medical Association has established 2 new Category I Current Procedural Terminology® codes to identify administration of the nirsevimab respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) monoclonal antibody (ie, 90380, 90381) for passive immunization of immune globulin against contracting RSV with counseling by a physician or other qualified health care professional (QHP) (96380) and without counseling by a physician or other QHP (96381). Report either 96380 or 96381 in lieu of 96372 for administration of nirsevimab on and after October 6, 2023.

96380 Administration of respiratory syncytial virus, monoclonal antibody, seasonal dose by intramuscular injection, with counseling by physician or other qualified health care professional

96381 Administration of respiratory syncytial virus, monoclonal antibody, seasonal dose by intramuscular injection

Be aware that National Correct Coding Initiative edits may be updated to bundle codes 96380 and 96381 when reported in conjunction with preventive medicine or problem-oriented evaluation and management (E/M) service codes (as is the case for immunization administration codes 90460–90461 and 90471–90474). When payer edits bundle immunization and E/M codes, append modifier 25 to the code for a significant and separately identifiable E/M service. Do not report an E/M code for the typical pre- and post-service work of immunization or for addressing a minor problem that required an insignificant amount of time or work by the reporting physician or other QHP.

Billing office staff should be vigilant for denial of 96380 and 96381, which may occur due to delays in updates to payers’ claims adjudication systems, and monitor payer communications or contact individual payers for instructions on whether claims will be automatically adjusted to allow payment after the system is updated or will need to be resubmitted or appealed. In the past, some payers have automatically reprocessed claims denied due to delayed system updates or system errors, but, even so, it may be necessary to verify that all claims are paid in a timely manner. It is not recommended to withhold billing pending a payer’s system updates, as timely filing policies may still apply.
