Doctors & Disciplines

There are several types of licensed physicians, with different approaches to healing. These doctors fall into two main branches of medicine: conventional and traditional. The conventional medicine branch now includes integrative medicine and homeopathy and the traditional includes alternatives. There are also licensed ancillary professionals within those two main categories. The code books for insurance reimbursement are the ICD-10-CM/PCS (Diagnosis/Procedure) and CPT (Procedure/Treatment). Insurance policies pay for visits to licensed physicians, using those codes (some designate only M.D. or D.O.).

Conventional Medicine Doctors

Conventional Medicine is controlled by the A.M.A. (American Medical Association); physicians are designated as M.D. (Medical Doctor) or D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathy). It is called “conventional” because it has become the standard for medical care in the Western world. How it came to be so is a story for another time; for now, just know insurance companies pay out for M.D. and D.O. visits and treatments (Medicare/Medicaid included).

Traditional/Alternative Doctors

Traditional/Alternative Medicine doctors are physicians who have a health-based model of practice and who work to find the cause of a disease and remove the obstacles to cure. This allows the body to do what it is made to do: heal itself. Traditional is called that because it encompasses things humans have learned to do, to heal and be healthy, since the beginning of humanity.
