Medical Marijuana Card ASSISTANCE in Arizona
Did you know 10% of every purchase you make at Level Up goes towards paying for your next medical marijuana card renewal?
We know that the cost of a medical marijuana card & annual medical marijuana card renewal can be burdensome for patients. That’s why we started our Patient For Life program. The idea is to help patients cover the cost of their annual card application so their card will never expire.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO GET A MEDICAL MARIJUANA CARD?
The state of Arizona charges a standard $150 fee for each application every year. Patients who receive SNAP benefits are eligible for a $75 reduction in their state fee.
Additionally, each applicant must pay a fee to the doctor to receive a recommendation for the medical marijuana program. By working with our on-site doctor, we are able to offer patients a special discounted rate on applications: Our doctor will charge Level Up patients $75 for recommendations.
Typically, a patient will pay: $150 state fee + $75 recommendation fee = $225 total
An additional $45 fee applies if the patient does not supply medical records and the doctor must conduct an exam. The exam fee is waived for veterans.
How do I get my free medical marijuana card?
Patients new to Level Up:
We offer our new patients reimbursement for the cost of their medical marijuana card through a series of product credits valid only at Level Up. Patients can choose to receive nine $25 credits or three $75 credits (each totaling $225). Fees must be paid upfront to the doctor at the time of exam.
Existing Level Up patients:
The first year you enroll in Patient for Life, we offer existing patients two ways to cover the medical marijuana card cost:
- Vouchers: We will track your spending since 4/20/17 and provide a voucher equal to 10% of what you’ve spent, not to exceed $225. So, if you spend $2,250 you will receive a voucher for $225 and pay nothing out of pocket to our on-site doctor (An additional $45 fee applies if the patient does not supply medical records and the doctor must conduct an exam. The exam fee is waived for veterans).
- Credits: If your spending history isn’t enough to cover the cost of a medical marijuana card, we also offer product credits. Patients can choose to receive nine $25 credits or three $75 credits (each totaling $225). If the patient elects to receive credits instead of a voucher, fees must be paid upfront to the doctor at the time of exam.
After you enroll in Patient for Life, 10% of all your spending at Level Up will go towards a voucher for next year’s card renewal.
I’m a new Level Up patient; How do I receive my credits?
If you do not have a current medical marijuana card, you must wait for your card to arrive in the mail, approximately 2 weeks after the doctor submits your application. Once you receive your card, return to Level Up with your new medical marijuana card and your receipt from the doctor. Our front desk staff will set you up as a new patient and issue the credits on your account.
If you already have a valid card, you can present your receipt from the doctor at our front desk and we will set you up as a new patient and issue the credits on your account.
I’m an existing Level Up patient; How do I receive my voucher?
Before your appointment with our doctor, please check in with our Patient for Life staff and they will calculate the value of your voucher and provide you with a printed copy to give to the doctor.
I’m an existing Level Up patient; Am I automatically enrolled in the program?
As of 4/20/17, All Level Up patients start accumulating 10% of their purchases towards a voucher to renew their card (max value $225).
Is this program for first-time patients or card renewals?
Both first-time patients and medical marijuana card renewals are eligible.
Can I use my credits all at once?
Discounts are limited to one use per transaction.
Do these credits expire?
Yes, the credits are good for 1 year from the date of your doctor’s exam.
How do I schedule an appointment with your on-site doctor?

What happens when it’s time to renew my card next year?
Patients have the option of choosing a voucher or credits the first time they enroll in Patient for Life. After your first enrollment, 10% of everything you purchase at Level Up will go towards your next card renewal. All established Level Up patients will have the option of using these savings towards a future card renewal. The credits are offered only the first time you renew your card through Patient for Life.
How much do I have to spend in a year to receive a voucher that completely covers my card?
Patients who have spend $2,250 in the 12 months prior will receive a voucher of $225 to cover their card expenses. On average, that’s $43 or an 1/8th of flower per week. If you spend more than $2,250 in the previous 12 month period (starting 4/20/17) then you will pay nothing out of pocket for your medical marijuana card. Please note, an additional $45 fee applies if the patient does not supply medical records and the doctor must conduct an exam. The exam fee is waived for veterans.
