The American Medical Association today released for immediate use Current Procedural Terminology codes for reporting on medical claims two laboratory tests (87636 and 87637) that simultaneously detect the COVID-19 virus, influenza A/B and respiratory syncytial virus.

The association also released CPT codes for two antigen tests for the COVID-19 virus (87426 and 87811), and revised the code descriptors for CPT codes 87301-87430 to clarify proper reporting for antigen tests read by a machine.
