CDT codes related to COVID-19 vaccine approved for use in 2021

The Code Maintenance Committee approved eight pandemic-related CDT codes for 2021. Dentists and dental practices are playing an important role in vaccine administration in many states, but guidelines have not yet been established by dental insurance companies as far as what is and isn't covered.

The new vaccination (and molecular testing) codes are:

  • D1701 Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine administration – first dose

  • D1702 Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine administration – second dose

  • D1703 Moderna COVID-19 vaccine administration – first dose

  • D1704 Moderna COVID-19 vaccine administration – second dose

  • D1705 AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine administration – first dose

  • D1706 AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine administration – second dose

  • D1707 Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) COVID-19 vaccine administration

  • D0606 Molecular testing for a public health related pathogen, including coronavirus

In addition, the committee approved 16 new codes, the deletion of 6 codes, and 13 revisions—all which will take effect in 2022.
