The Encyclopedia of CAM Treatment & Nursing Terminology is a comprehensive guide that clearly defines complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) procedures as billable events and codes them to correspond with the type of provider who can legally render the procedure. The use of these terms and codes facilitates communication between CAM providers and the insurance industry, resulting in less confusion and quicker claims adjudication. 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 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.
