The following new codes have been added for reporting COVID-19 immunization administration services:
Effective June 8, 2021, code M0201 was established to report that a COVID-19 vaccine was administered to a patient in their home due to difficulty receiving the vaccine in a health care setting. Check payer guidance for coverage of code M0201.
In anticipation of the US Food and Drug Administration authorization of a third dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, new Current Procedural Terminology® code 0003A was released on July 30, 2021, and will be implemented if and when a third dose is authorized.
For the most up-to-date information on coding for services related to COVID-19, see the dedicated American Academy of Pediatrics COVID-19 coding resource located at https://downloads.aap.org/AAP/PDF/COVID%202020.pdf.
