After obtaining their CT Medical Marijuana Program (MMP) card from the CT DCP, all registered patients may either choose to schedule a follow-up Telemedicine visit with our office ($75 fee) within 6 months or follow-up with their PCP, or referring physician, prior to the patient’s annual renewal visit.
Patients are certified for one calendar year in the CT Medical Marijuana program. The fee for annual medical re-certification is $175. It is recommended that patients re-certify within one month prior to their card’s expiration date to insure there is no lapse in access to the medical cannabis dispensary.
