To commemorate Memorial day we are offering $20 off on all certifications and remaining 2024 renewals. May 23-31st CODE: MDAY24

PA Medical Marijuana Assistance Program (MMAP)

There are two fees to every certification and renewal. One to the doctor to approve your certification and the other is to the PA Department of Health for the actual medical marijuana card. The MMAP waives the $50 fee for the actual card. It does not provide any financial assistance to the doctor to approve your certification or renewal.

 

What is the Medical Marijuana assistance program ( MMAP)?

  1. A program to assist with the cost of providing medical marijuana to patients who demonstrate financial hardship or need.

  2. A program to assist patients and caregivers with the cost associated with the waiver or reduction of fees for identification cards.

  3. A program to provide for the cost of background checks for caregivers

 

What you should know about MMAP.

  • If you participate in one of the state’s financial hardship programs, your identification card fee will be removed during the online payment process to the PA Department of Health.
  • When you confirm you are participating in one of the state’s financial hardship programs, your fee will be reduced to $0, and no payment is required.
  • First-time caregivers will not be charged a fee for background checks when they visit the IdentoGo website to be fingerprinted.

 

These programs include:

  • Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
  • Medicaid
  • Programs of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)
  • PACE Needs Enhancement Tier (PACENET)
  • Supplemental Nutrition Program (SNAP)
  • Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)

 

There is no need to apply for the MMAP. If you are enrolled in one of the above programs you already qualify for the waived fee for your medical marijuana card. The MMAP does not offer financial assistance to the doctor for your certification or renewal, you are still financially responsible for that cost.
