What do I need to bring to my appointment? 
MMTC providers request that you bring supporting documentation with your diagnosis or prior treatment to the clinic at the time of your initial appointment. In addition, please bring identification or proof of Florida residency. if you have questions about which documents to bring with you, give us a call at 850-906-5000.

Do I need the Registry ID card first? 
No. In fact, a medical cannabis provider such as those at our clinics must qualify you and complete an assessment before you can be assigned a patient ID number, which you need in order to apply for the card through the state Office of Medical Marijuana Use.

Do you take my insurance? 
Unfortunately, medical cannabis is still federally illegal, therefore no insurance company has elected to cover cannabis-related treatments.

Is my medical information secure? 
We take all necessary measures to be 100% HIPAA compliant. Any personal health information you provide is completely safe and secure.
