Clifford Consulting does not accept Insurance assignment.

Obtaining insurance reimbursement is the responsibility of the paitient. In order to aide patients in seeking insurance reimbursement current industry standard procedural codes (CPT codes) are listed on every receipt. Diagnosis (ICD 9,10) codes should be obtained by your ordering professional. Reinbursement is not guarenteed as insurance coverage and policies vary widely. Please contact your insurance company to determine what coverage you may or may not have.

As a non-acute care facility we have declined to participate with Medicare or to accept other insurance assignments for several reasons. These include:

  • The massive diversity of insurance policies and laws throughtout the world which make reinbursement a complex and unpredictable process

  • Our preventative services are not covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or other USA government healthcare programs

  • The high denial rate of medical claims for dental-related services

Clifford Consulting and Research Inc is the only source for the Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing (CMRT).

The CMRT test was invented by Walter Jess Clifford, using techniques and methods gained through his experience in private and military biomedical research.

Other organizations have attempted to mimic CMRT testing methods and techniques. Although there are some similarities in the philosophy of their testing with CMRT, there are substantive differences, including:

  • Stringent quality control procedures for reagents, testing, and reporting of results
  • Continual clinical research by the inventor of the test to refine and improve testing methods and capabilities.
  • CMRT currently reports on the largest list of trade named dental and orthopedic related products of its kind. This database is continually updated as new products become available.
  • Ethical and professional service in partnership with the patients ordering healthcare professionals.

Clifford Consulting and Research does not indorse any competitor's test nor are there currently any other tests of this kind which meet CMRT standards. By the same token, Clifford Consulting & Research and its staff members have no desire to disparage it's competitors and recognizes the value of legitimate competition in advancing science.
