The American Medical Association yesterday announced Current Procedural Terminology codes for reporting the single-dose Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) COVID-19 vaccine and its administration on medical claims if the Food and Drug Administration approves the candidate vaccine or authorizes it for emergency use.

“Janssen’s single-dose COVID-19 vaccine would mark a big change from the double-dose vaccines currently available,” said AMA President Susan Bailey, M.D. “The change will place greater importance on accurately reporting COVID-19 immunizations by vaccine type and dose to ensure patients complete the appropriate immunization schedule. Unique CPT codes that clinically distinguish each COVID-19 vaccine provide the needed informational precision to ensure optimal vaccine distribution and administration.”
