Does Insurance Pay for my Evaluation and Application?

NO.     If you're wondering will insurance pay for the marijuana evaluation, the answer is likely no. Currently, most insurance plans do not cover medical marijuana evaluations or applications due to federal regulations. Unfortunately, Medicare, Medicaid or other health insurance companies are not willing to cover anything related to marijuana since it is not approved as a medicine by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In addition, bank insurance regulations also prohibit cannabis related financing. Consequently, payments for marijuana products and related services are largely done on a cash basis.

However, there’s a silver lining! There are some states where insurance pay for the marijuana evaluation. In New York, mandate insurers to cover doctor’s visits related to medical marijuana if you’re diagnosed with a qualifying condition.

What are the Costs without Insurance?

The cost for a medical marijuana evaluation without insurance in Florida typically ranges from $150 to $300. This fee often includes the consultation with a qualified physician, a physical exam, and may cover follow-up visits for several months. It’s important to note that these costs can vary depending on the healthcare provider and the clinic’s policies. Always check with the specific clinic for their pricing and services to ensure you have the most accurate information.
