It is important for you to bring any medical documentation that supports your diagnosis. This includes recent medical records, prescriptions, physician’s notes, MRIs or any other documentation that you think can help.

How can I obtain my medical records?

Call your physician or the hospital where you have been treated and tell them you want copies of your medical records. They will tell you the process and typically have you sign an authorization to fax to them.

What if I cannot retrieve my medical records?

Our staff will assist you in retrieving your records.

Do you accept insurance?

Currently there are not any medical marijuana doctors in the Florida that accept insurance.

Will my name be on a state or federal list?

We consider your privacy the utmost importance and follow HIPAA guidelines to ensure patient privacy. You will only be registered with the Florida Compassionate Use Registry. This is a secure, electronic, and online database for the registration of ordering physicians and qualified patients. It is accessible to ordering physicians, law enforcement, dispensing organization staff, and Office of Compassionate Use staff.

Where can I get a medical marijuana card?

A patient must first seek treatment from a qualified physician for at least three months immediately preceding their order for medical marijuana. Once the ordering physician inputs the patient’s information and the order information into the Compassionate Use Patient Registry, the patient or the patient’s legal representative will then be able to contact one of the licensed dispensing organizations and fill the order. Our team will assist you in finding the closest dispensing organization to you.

Can I grow my own marijuana?

No. Florida law only allows the licensed dispensing organizations to grow, process and dispense marijuana. What are the Florida state requirements to become a qualifying patient? Florida law has several requirements for patients to be eligible to receive low-THC cannabis or medical cannabis. • A patient must have been diagnosed with a qualifying condition. • A patient must be a Florida resident. • If under the age of 18, a patient must have a second physician agree to the use of low-THC cannabis or medical cannabis in order to obtain an order from a qualified physician. • A patient must have tried other treatments without success. • An ordering physician must determine the risks of using low-THC cannabis or medical cannabis are reasonable in light of the benefit to the patient. • A patient must be registered with the Compassionate Use Registry by their ordering physician.

How much low-THC cannabis or medical cannabis can a qualifying physician order for a patient?

Qualifying physicians can order no more than a 45-day supply and a cannabis delivery device needed by the patient for the medical use of low-THC cannabis or medical cannabis.
