If patients can prove NY state residency and have a qualifying medical condition, the next step is to obtain a medical marijuana patient certification from a participating physician, physician’s assistant, or nurse practitioner.
Once patients have received certification by a registered medical marijuana program provider, they must go online to NY.gov to complete an online patient application for the medical marijuana program in which proof of residency and patient certification is required. Once approved by NYS, the patient will receive their medical marijuana card in the mail. For a list of registered medical marijuana organization dispensary locations click here.
Medical insurance does not cover medical marijuana consultations, however, our consultation fee includes the complete medical evaluation: the physician’s office visit, review of medical records, documentation of necessary paperwork with New York State. Note that this fee does not guarantee registration, there are certain patient criteria that must be met.
