Becoming a registered practitioner under the Medical Marijuana Program could provide pain management alternatives to opioids, grow your patient base, expand your practice, and increase revenues. New York State’s Medical Marijuana Program now makes it easier for practices to certify patients by adding more qualifying conditions (such as chronic pain), increasing the number of medicinal manufacturers, and allowing nurse practitioners and physician’s assistants to certify patients.
However, only one of three patients will have their consultation covered by insurance, once registered, practitioners typically receive up-front cash and can quickly recoup their costs with just a few booked appointments. Navigating the registration process for the Medical Marijuana Program, qualifying for the program, and meeting ongoing compliance requirements are vitally important – and missteps can result in steep penalties. Legal counsel ensures a smooth and lawful integration of marijuana certification into your practice.
