Accepted addition of two codes (0164A, 91316). These codes are intended for Moderna vaccine for children 6 months to 5 years as a booster.

Codes 91316, 0164A were published on Nov. 16, 2022 and will be effective upon receiving Emergency Use Authorization or approval from the Food and Drug Administration.

In addition, codes 0134A, 0144A, 0154A, 91313, 91314, and 91315 were effective on Oct. 12, 2022.

Appendix Q has been updated to reflect this new information, as well as by updating the patient age for code 91313 to include ages 12 through 17 years.

These CPT codes, developed based on extensive collaboration with Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are unique for each of four coronavirus vaccines as well as administration codes unique to each such vaccine and dose. The new CPT codes clinically distinguish each COVID-19 vaccine for better tracking, reporting and analysis that supports data-driven planning and allocation.
