Qualified patients must first seek treatment from a Dr. Deepa Verma, or another qualified physician, for three months or more immediately before your order of low-THC or medical marijuana. When Dr. Verma determines you are eligible for the Florida marijuana program, she will present you with an approved physician certification form. She will also input your information and the order information into the Compassionate Use Patient Registry. You or your legal caregiver or representative may then contact one of the Florida dispensing organizations to complete the order.
No. Medical health insurance will not pay for your marijuana order.
Marijuana dispensaries can only provide a marijuana delivery system, low-THC marijuana or medical marijuana to a qualified patient or their legal representative.
The legal representative is the patient’s parent or a legal guardian who is acting according to a court authorization under section 744.3215(4). A qualified patient’s legal representative, according to Florida statutes, may also be a health care surrogate who is acting according to the qualified patient’s written consent or a court’s authorization under section 765.113. Individuals acting upon a power of attorney may make healthcare decisions on behalf of the qualified patient and may order and pick up marijuana for the qualified patient.
Qualifying physicians may order a 45-day supply and a marijuana delivery device for the medical use of either low-THC marijuana or medical marijuana.
It is your responsibility to have your medical records sent in full to Dr. Verma for review before your medical marijuana appointment. You can mail your medical records to Dr. Verma at Synergistiq Integrative Health 3165 N. MCMULLEN BOOTH ROAD SUITE D-2, CLEARWATER, FL, 33761.
Medical marijuana certifications are valid for one year after the medical marijuana registration is approved. Dr. Verma recommends that you make an appointment well before the expiration date for re-evaluation and to obtain a renewal of your medical marijuana physician certification.
No. Insurance companies are currently not covering the cost of the certification process, doctor consultation or the application for medical marijuana or Low-THC use. Dr. Verma offers affordable prices for the initial visit, follow-up and on-going care.
