We at Level Up always keep our patients in mind at every level of the medical marijuana journey. Of course, we love to help you from the second you step inside our dispensary to get the medicine you need as any other Arizona dispensary would do. But we take our care to another level by also helping to keep your medical marijuana card cost as low as possible.
New potential patients commonly ask how much a medical marijuana card in AZ costs and what they must do to acquire it.
The state of Arizona charges a $150 standard fee for each applicant every year to get their medical marijuana card registered properly. Every year, each patient will have to come back to renew their card to stay in compliance and be able to visit their favorite AZ dispensary. However, any patients who receive SNAP benefits from the state can get their medical marijuana card cost reduced by $75.
It is required by the state of Arizona to have current medical records within the last twelve months from a qualified physician as well. Each applicant can bring their own medical records but if they don’t have them they can usually pay a fee to a doctor who works with medical marijuana certification facilities to receive the proper recommendation if needed. We at Level Up have our own doctor working on-site at our facility. This allows us to offer our patients a discounted rate if they decide to get their medical marijuana cards with us.
Our on-site doctor charges $75 to see if potential patients pass Arizona’s requirements to the state’s medical marijuana program.
To get their medical marijuana card, a patient will usually pay a total of $225 with us consisting of our doctor’s $75 recommendation fee plus the $150 standard state fee. When a patient comes to Level Up for their medical cannabis recommendation and happens to not have current medical records from the past twelve months, we will apply an additional $25 charge so our on-site doctor can examine them in order for us to finish their recommendation according to Arizona state requirements.
While many medical marijuana certification facilities have similar deals and prices, at Level Up, we provide yet another program to keep our patients medical marijuana card costs as low as possible. We actually make it possible them to get their medical marijuana cards completely FREE!
Patients new to Level Up can decide to get their medical marijuana cards with us, and they can also get reimbursed through a series of products credits that they can redeem only with us. Patients pay for the cards upfront to our on-site doctor at the time of the exam, but then patients can choose to receive credits in the form of three $75 credits or nine $25 credits which both total to the full $225 medical marijuana card cost.
For our current, existing patients we offer two ways for you to cover the medical marijuana card cost from us at Level Up. The first way starting from April 20th, 2017 we can track your spending and provide you a voucher equal to 10% of what you have spent with us so far in that time frame in products. This voucher cannot exceed $225. Therefore, if you spend $2,250 or more with us at Level Up in products, you will receive a voucher equivalent to $225 that will completely cover the costs of your medical marijuana certification (with the possible exception of that extra $25 fee if you didn’t bring current medical records).
The second way patients can get their card for free with us at Level Up is the same way new patients can. They can get their medical marijuana cards with us and then get reimbursed through a series of products credits valid only with us. Patients pay for the cards upfront to our on-site doctor at the time of the exam, but then patients can choose to receive credits in the form of three $75 credits or nine $25 credits which both total to the full $225 medical marijuana card cost.
