Our reputation as the most responsible choice in the industry is important to us. Therefore, we have implemented the Attorney Protection Plan to protect the interests and privacy of our patients. The AZMMCC arranges an attorney consultation for every patient who is certified by our Arizona medical marijuana doctors. Patients have the opportunity to discuss any questions regarding the legal use of medical marijuana with an attorney who is experienced in the area of medical marijuana laws. The AZMMCC covers the cost of the legal consultation as a gesture of thanks to the patients who choose our center for medical marijuana certification.
First and foremost, you must have a medical condition that qualifies you for the use of
medical marijuana under Arizona State Statutes. If you suffer from any of the conditions
below, you could benefit from the use of medical marijuana:
The first step in the medical marijuana application process is extensive documentation of your medical condition. Without current and verifiable medical records, our physicians will be unable to certify your condition under Arizona law. Although there are conditions where a patient will qualify for the Arizona Medical Marihuana Program without the necessity of full documentation, the Arizona Medical Marijuana Certification Center (AZMMCC) requires that all your records are current within the last three years and document your qualifying condition.
If you prefer that we handle your medical record collection, you must complete the medical release form and fax or mail it to our office so that we may request your medical records from your treatment.
Upon receipt of your medical records, our physicians thoroughly review the records to determine if you qualify for the Arizona Medical Marihuana Program. If additional documents are required for the review, a AZMMCC staff member will contact you and let you know which documents are needed for our records. If you qualify for the program, we will call you to schedule an appointment with one of our physicians.
At your certification appointment, our physicians will talk with you about your qualification for certification of a medical condition that may qualify you for the Arizona Medical Marihuana Program. By law, our physicians must only discuss your qualification for the program. After review and approval, qualified patients will receive a signed Physician Certification Form that will allow them to apply to the state for a Medical Marijuana Identification Card. In order to receive the Physician Certification Form, patients must present a valid Arizona ID, such as a Arizona ID or Arizona driver’s license, along with the physician visit fee. Please note that insurance companies do not cover medical marijuana consultations or the state’s medical marijuana application fee.
In order to obtain your Medical Marijuana Identification Card, you must upload electronically the following information to the Arizona Department of Health Services. see fees…
