How much does it cost to visit a medical marijuana doctor?
Visiting with a medical marijuana doctor and receiving the necessary examination is affordable for many patients. During this exam, the doctor will check that you have a medical condition and symptoms that can be treated with medical marijuana. Some of the conditions medical marijuana can help with include HIV, arthritis, back pain, ALS, anxiety, epilepsy, migraines, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, parkinson’s disease, cancer, PTSD, and others. It’s possible that medical marijuana can help with other conditions too, but this is to the discretion of a physician and the Department of Health.
It’s important to understand that medical insurance doesn’t cover the costs of getting started with medical marijuana or future treatments. Also, there is no universal cost for medical marijuana examinations, so the amount you’ll pay depends on the practice you’ll visit in Florida. You can expect to pay about $250+ for your initial evaluation. Here at Boca Medical Care, medical marijuana exams are one of our specialties, so we’re able to provide them at an affordable price.
Is there a cost to getting a medical marijuana card?
Yes, there’s a cost for this as well. In Florida, a patient can expect to pay about $75 for their medical marijuana card which will be issued from the Florida Department of Health. There is a renewal fee for the card too. This is $75 and it covers the card for a full year. There are other costs involved with medical marijana use, and they can add up for a patient, but it’s worth it for so many patients, especially those who’ve been struggling with managing their pain or chronic condition for many years now.
With a medical marijuana card, you’ll be able to access Florida’s medical marijuana dispensaries from which you can obtain medical cannabis or low-THC cannabis, depending on which is appropriate for your condition.
