New CPT Code for Novavax COVID-19 Vaccine
Jul 13, 2021
The Novavax COVID-19 vaccine is still undergoing stage three clinical trials, including clinical trials for its use on children. Therefore, it hasn’t yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for distribution. The Novavax vaccine has thus far shown to be 96% effective against the original strain of COVID-19, 86% effective against the B.1.1.7/501Y.V1 variant of the virus, and 100% effective against severe symptoms of the disease.
What Is the CPT Code for the Novavax Vaccine?
The Novavax COVID-19 vaccine is administered in two doses. The American Medical Association (AMA) has released CPT codes for the vaccine itself as well as codes for the administration of each dose:
- Novavax vaccine CPT code: 91304
- First dose administration CPT code: 0041A
- Second dose administration CPT code: 0042A
The above CPT codes will help physicians to bill for the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine once it has been approved for administration by the FDA after it completes its clinical trials.
