Getting a medical card in Illinois, Missouri, or Colorado can be tricky, given that not all medical cannabis clinics offer all the necessary services in-house or are willing to offer free assistance with the medical card application process. At Medical Cannabis Outreach, we believe that anyone who qualifies for a medical marijuana card should be able to apply for one with the Compassionate Use Of Medical Cannabis Program, which is why we offer a streamlined application process at each of our medical cannabis clinics. Continue reading to learn how our medical card application process works, or stop by any one of eight locations to see if you qualify for a medical cannabis card.

In-House Approvals

When you visit Medical Cannabis Outreach for assistance with the medical card application process, one of our friendly, in-house medical marijuana doctors will provide a free assessment in order to approve or deny you for use of medical cannabis with the program. These approvals are fast, easy, and convenient, assuming that you have one of the severe or debilitating health conditions that qualifies you for use of medical marijuana and/or CBD oil. To make this process as fast and hassle-free as possible, our cannabis-friendly physicians highly recommend that you bring all necessary paperwork, including two proofs of identification, age, and residency (such as a current driver’s license, passport, or birth certificate), as well as your medical records. Then, we can move forward with the medical card consultation and evaluation!

In-House Consultation & Evaluation

Once you have been approved to apply for the Compassionate Use Of Medical Cannabis Program, our in-clinic physicians will provide a formal evaluation to ensure that you would be a good fit for the program. During your visit, we will look over your medical records to ensure that you have a qualifying health condition and that you would benefit from the use of medical marijuana and/or CBD oil. Unlike many other medicinal cannabis clinics, our physicians take the time to get to know you, your story, and provide professional recommendations with regard to strains, dosage, methods of consumption (edibles, vapor, topicals, etc.), and more. Once you have been approved and have the go-ahead to apply for a medical card, you can consider our medical cannabis clinic your go-to for all medical marijuana questions, concerns, and advice.

In-House Photo ID & State Fee Payment

If you decide to proceed with the medical card application, our clinicians will guide you through the process, from filling out the application form and paying the mandated state fee to having your photo ID taken. We will also help you determine whether or not you qualify for any discounts on the annual medical card fee, as many U.S. veterans and those on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) do. Here are the mandated state fees for patients who apply for a medical card:

  • One-year medical card registration:

    • $100 for qualifying patients
    • $50 for patients with SSDI or U.S. veterans with DD214/discharge papers
  • Two-year medical card registration:

    • $200 for qualifying patients
    • $100 for patients with SSDI or U.S. veterans with DD214/discharge papers
  • Three-year medical card registration:

    • $250 for qualifying patients
    • $125 for patients with SSDI or U.S. veterans with DD214/discharge papers

Based on your unique health condition, needs, and lifestyle, our physicians will work with you to determine which registration term is best, and we will provide ongoing care to ensure that you are getting the most out of the program. As previously mentioned, our application process is free, and we work closely with patients to get them the natural treatment they need to live happy, pain-free lives.
