Florida Medical Marijuana Eligibility
There are three steps involved in getting your Florida medical marijuana card, with the first step scheduling a medical evaluation with our office. Our medical marijuana doctors are qualified through the state to order medical marijuana. During your in-person visit to our office, you’ll fill out some standard forms and then your physician will complete a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine if medical marijuana may benefit you.
If your chronic condition meets the state requirements, you’ll receive a recommendation for medical marijuana as well as a care plan. Finally, you will be registered with the state, allowing you to purchase medical marijuana from local dispensaries.
Who Qualifies For Medical Marijuana In Florida?
In order to qualify for medical marijuana use in the state of Florida patients must meet the following criteria:
Physicians have the right to exercise their medical judgment in recommending medical marijuana for patients that suffer from chronic medical conditions that are not on the list but are comparable in class or kind.
Health Insurance does not cover medical marijuana services or products.
First, you’ll need to be evaluated by a medical marijuana physician that is qualified to order medical marijuana. This includes making an in person visit to the physician’s office. Once you are there you’ll be required to fill out a few standard forms that will be made part of your medical record. The physician will then complete a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine if medical marijuana may benefit you
Second, once the physician determines that your chronic condition meets the Florida Department of Health requirements for medical marijuana use he or she will make a recommendation for medical marijuana use and establish a medical care plan on your behalf. This is similar to writing a prescription.
Third, now that you have been recommended for medical marijuana use the physician must register your name and information with the Florida Department of Health’s Compassionate Use data base. This will allow you to obtain your medical marijuana from a dispensary licensed by the Florida Department of Health.
