Description

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) providers and those involved in the insurance industry will finally be able to communicate clearly. The Encyclopedia of CAM Treatment & Nursing Terminology defines each CAM procedure as a billable event and codes them as to what type of provider can legally provide the service, facilitating claims adjudication and lessening confusion. When coupled with electronic business methods this coding system can reduce the cost associated with filing and processing health insurance claims. The terms and descriptions found in The Encyclopedia of CAM Treatment & Nursing Terminology have been included in the National Library of Medicine's Unified Medical Language System and the X-12 Implementation Guide for Electronic Messages, indicating that this system is on its way to becoming a national standard.show more
